PageKite vs Teleconsole: What are the differences?

What is PageKite? Make local websites or SSH servers publicly accessible in mere seconds. PageKite is a system for exposing localhost servers to the public Internet. It is most commonly used to make local web servers or SSH servers publicly visible, although almost any TCP-based protocol can work if the client knows how to use an HTTP proxy.

What is Teleconsole? Share your UNIX terminal in seconds. Teleconsole is a free service to share your terminal session with people you trust. Your friends can join via a command line using SSH or by using their browser. Use it when two parties are separated by NAT and you cannot connect via SSH directly.

PageKite and Teleconsole can be primarily classified as "localhost" tools.

Some of the features offered by PageKite are:

  • Let colleagues and clients test or remote-debug directly off your computer.
  • Simplify testing on mobile devices and live networks.
  • Run webhooks, API servers or git repos on your desktop - or in a VM.

On the other hand, Teleconsole provides the following key features:

  • Forwarding local TCP ports - how to let joining parties access TCP ports on your localhost.
  • Using Secure Sessions - how to invite specific people, like Github users or owners of a specific public SSH key.
  • Private Proxies - how to set up your own proxy servers without having to rely on https://teleconsole.com.

PageKite and Teleconsole are both open source tools. Teleconsole with 2.29K GitHub stars and 96 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PageKite with 499 GitHub stars and 90 GitHub forks.
