Secure and Instant hosting on any network

What is Packetriot?

It uses a secure reverse tunneling protocol to expose servers on local or private networks to the Internet. It supports HTTP/S and TCP traffic and is built to work behind Firewalls, NATs, and Carrier Grade NATs (CG-NAT). Tunnels are assigned a unique and persistent hostname and connect to the same Packetriot server making it simple to setup custom domains. Integration with Let's Encrypt makes it automatic and simple to secure services. The Packetriot client can serve both upstream web services and static assets eliminating additional tools, such as web servers, and reduce configuration overhead for testing.
Packetriot is a tool in the localhost Tools category of a tech stack.
