Query on a remote server

I'm currently trying to setup and work with Kibana from a laptop. Is it possible to ssh to a remote server from windows to query without installing any applications on the remote server?

If you can access the Elasticsearch cluster from your computer you can run Kibana from your machine.

You would need to set elasticsearch.url to the remote machine and possibly elasticsearch.username and elasticsearch.password depending on if you have X-Pack.

So i have to install the packages on the remote server, haven't i?

Thanks a lot..

X-Pack is not required here. If you are able to access elasticsearch.url (http//<elasticsearch domain/ip>:9200) then you can provide the url in your kibana.yml .
