A tunnel is a private connection from the LoadNinja engine and your tested web application that is not publicly available. This can be an Intranet app running in your network or on your computer. That is, you use tunnels to record and run UI tests against these applications.

On this settings page, you can download the tunnel utility to your computer and check if the tunnel is up and running:

Note: Quite often, local web apps work behind a proxy or firewall. These proxies and firewalls should allow the tunnel utility to access the Web.

For complete information on how the tunnels work, see Test Web Apps in Local Network.

Static IP

On the Static IP tab, you can view the IP addresses of the load generator servers assigned to your account. This is especially helpful when you need to generate the load from specific IPs and to allow traffic from them to the tested web applications in your internal network.

To request a static IP for a load generator, contact our Support team.

Global Recorder Settings
