MySQL GUI client

Using HTTP Tunneling

Summary

This article elaborates on the HTTP Tunneling connection method and explains how to configure it by means of dbForge Studio for MySQL.

Introducing HTTP Tunneling

HTTP tunneling is a method of connecting to a MySQL Server through HTTP/HTTPS protocol and via the port that is used by a web server. The method may come  in useful when a direct connection to MySQL Server, that utilizes port 3306, is problematic for certain reasons, e.g. it is closed by security reasons, or firewall blocks access from all network protocols, except HTTP. Since port 80, that is used by web server, cannot be blocked, HTTP tunneling seems to be the ultimate technique to solve a range of MySQL connection issues.

Comic video about developing dbForge Studio for MySQL

Our company has been working on its own MySQL GUI client development for over 6 years. Many features were implemented in this product in accordance with our users’ requests, that acted as task originators for us. We are glad that the development process of our MySQL Front-End goes on and on, and we were able to release version 5.0 of the product. For the release of version 5.0, we decided to make a special video telling about the product history. You can see the result.

Funny video about history of our MySQL GUI tool

We did not intend to have a professional video made by clip-makers. The video was shot frame-by-frame using a common digital camera. After that jpg files were rendered to the mp4 video format. Shooting took almost 7 hours. All models were made by hand from plasticine by one of our employees, whose hobby is design and model-making. All of us want to thank him for this!
