Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by JanLehnardt:
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/FrequentlyAskedQuestions

The comment on the change is:
Add FaQ about connecting to a remote CouchDB installation securely.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  choice of language for helper scripts is Python, but any will do,
  whatever suits you best.
  
+ == I use CouchDB on a remote server and I don't want it to listen on a public port for security
reasons. Is there a way to connect to it from my local machine or can I still use Futon with
it? ==
+ 
+ On you local machine, set up an ssh tunnel to your server and 
+ tell it to forward requests to the local port 5984 to the remote
+ server's port 5984:
+ 
+ {{{
+ $ ssh -L5984:127.0.0.1:5984 ssh.example.com
+ }}}
+ 
+ Now you can connect to the remote CouchDB through
+ http://localhost:5984/
