SSH tunnel doesn't work

Hey there,

I have an SSH tunnel running as a service on my Debian. The thing is that I can’t access my SSH server. I have enabled the Browser Rendering option, but it didn’t work. Can you please advise? Thank you so much in advance.

What do you see when you try an access the page?
Are there any cloudflared logs?
Are there any sshd logs?
Are there any Cloudflare WAF logs?

  1. Network is unreachable
  2. The access log is empty.
  3. I’m on Windows and actually, I think that may be the problem. I can’t add these lines into my ssh config file like I’m supposed to do on Mac/Linux
  ProxyCommand /usr/local/bin/cloudflared access ssh --hostname %h
  1. Honestly, I don’t know how to check these logs. I’m on the free plan.

BTW, should the public hostname contain the service port?


But I really think my client(Windows) is the real issue here - I don’t know how to configure it.

Thank you so much for your time once again, I really appreciate it!

If you are trying to use browser rendered SSH, then you just open your browser to the hostname, and it should load. You don’t need to add anything to your SSH config.

Oh, that’s great news! At least I don’t have to bother with the SSH config file.

But it doesn’t work. I don’t know why but the page keeps loading. The bad news is that I don’t see anything in the log files, unfortunately.

The tunnel is running, the application is running as a browser SSH. I honestly don’t know what I’m doing wrong here.

If you open dev tools on your browser, do you see any console or network errors?

I had a few errors in the console, but now I can’t see them.

As a sanity check: look at your WAF logs. See if there are any logs there for your ssh url.

Can you please tell me where I can find my Cloudflare WAF logs? Thank you.
