Chisel Server

Chisel Server Options
$ chisel server --help
Usage: chisel server [options]
--host, Defines the HTTP listening host – the network interface
(defaults the environment variable HOST and falls back to
--port, -p, Defines the HTTP listening port (defaults to the environment
variable PORT and fallsback to port 8080).
--key, An optional string to seed the generation of a ECDSA public
and private key pair. All communications will be secured using this
key pair. Share the subsequent fingerprint with clients to enable detection
of man-in-the-middle attacks (defaults to the CHISEL_KEY environment
variable, otherwise a new key is generate each run).
--authfile, An optional path to a users.json file. This file should
be an object with users defined like:
"<user:pass>": ["<addr-regex>","<addr-regex>"]
when <user> connects, their <pass> will be verified and then
each of the remote addresses will be compared against the list
of address regular expressions for a match. Addresses will
always come in the form "<remote-host>:<remote-port>" for normal remotes
and "R:<local-interface>:<local-port>" for reverse port forwarding
remotes. This file will be automatically reloaded on change.
--auth, An optional string representing a single user with full
access, in the form of <user:pass>. It is equivalent to creating an
authfile with {"<user:pass>": [""]}. If unset, it will use the
environment variable AUTH.
--keepalive, An optional keepalive interval. Since the underlying
transport is HTTP, in many instances we'll be traversing through
proxies, often these proxies will close idle connections. You must
specify a time with a unit, for example '5s' or '2m'. Defaults
to '25s' (set to 0s to disable).
--backend, Specifies another HTTP server to proxy requests to when
chisel receives a normal HTTP request. Useful for hiding chisel in
plain sight.
--socks5, Allow clients to access the internal SOCKS5 proxy. See
chisel client --help for more information.
--reverse, Allow clients to specify reverse port forwarding remotes
in addition to normal remotes.
--tls-key, Enables TLS and provides optional path to a PEM-encoded
TLS private key. When this flag is set, you must also set --tls-cert,
and you cannot set --tls-domain.
--tls-cert, Enables TLS and provides optional path to a PEM-encoded
TLS certificate. When this flag is set, you must also set --tls-key,
and you cannot set --tls-domain.
--tls-domain, Enables TLS and automatically acquires a TLS key and
certificate using LetsEncypt. Setting --tls-domain requires port 443.
You may specify multiple --tls-domain flags to serve multiple domains.
The resulting files are cached in the "$HOME/.cache/chisel" directory.
You can modify this path by setting the CHISEL_LE_CACHE variable,
or disable caching by setting this variable to "-". You can optionally
provide a certificate notification email by setting CHISEL_LE_EMAIL.
--tls-ca, a path to a PEM encoded CA certificate bundle or a directory
holding multiple PEM encode CA certificate bundle files, which is used to
validate client connections. The provided CA certificates will be used
instead of the system roots. This is commonly used to implement mutual-TLS.
--pid Generate pid file in current working directory
-v, Enable verbose logging
--help, This help text
The chisel process is listening for:
a SIGUSR2 to print process stats, and
a SIGHUP to short-circuit the client reconnect timer
