These instructions explain how to set up an SSH connection to your DC/OS cluster from an outside network. If you are on the same network as your cluster or connected by using VPN, you can instead use the
dcos node ssh command. For more information, see the dcos node section of the CLI reference.
When developing services on DC/OS, you may find it helpful to access your cluster from your local machine via SOCKS proxy, HTTP proxy, or VPN. For instance, you can work from your own development environment and immediately test against your DC/OS cluster.
