How to Use the Solr Web Interface Securely via SSH tunneling

How to Use the Solr Web Interface Securely via SSH tunneling

Version

Cb Response 4.x, 5.x, 6.1

Topic

The Solr Datastore requires communication over port 8080. This port is not enabled by default and we recommend against opening this port since the Solr UI is unauthenticated. SSH Tunneling for port 8080 is a secure form of accessing the page.

Warning: The Solr UI should be used for troubleshooting and diagnostic purposes only. Do not make any configuration changes without an MSSP or Carbon Black Support's approval

Steps

Windows (Putty)

Note: These steps are for use with putty. Steps using different applications may vary

  1. Launch Putty. Different categories will be listed on the left side, click on Connection > SSH > Tunnels.
  2. Under Add new forwarded port, enter the following information:
    1. Source port: 8080
    2. Destination: localhost:8080
    3. Click Add
  3. Update your saved session (click on the session and hit save)
  4. You can then navigate to http://localhost:8080/solr in the browser

MacOs/Linux

  1. Open a terminal session tunneling port 8080 when you ssh:
    ssh -L localhost:8080:127.0.0.1:8080 SERVERADDRESS
  2. You can then navigate to http://localhost:8080/solr in the browser
