Accessing Kibana via SSH tunnel

I am trying to acces kibana from a remote machine through an SSH tunnel:

$ ssh -f user@elastichost -L 5601:elastichost:5601 -N

My remote browser just times out waiting for a response.

Is there a reason why this should not work?

Do you mean local browser accessing the remote kibana? (or why 'remote browser'?)

What succeeded for me is to use a tunnel for ElasticSearch for a local kibana. But I see no reason that a remote kibana should not work too.


Did you find a solution? I am facing the same problem (access remote kibana from local browser)
