sckt client

Project Description

This is the client app for sckt, a general purpose reverse proxy.

To make use of this software, at the moment you have to create an account at [](


To get started, install sckt-client (see the next section), and have your account credentials at hand. On the first time you run the client, you’ll need to enter them, but you won’t need them on from then on.

Sharing an ssh server running on the computer is as simple as

sckt -d mymachine 22

This will forward requests to for this client. You can omit the -d mymachine flag, then sckt will show you a unique, generated domain name.

If you don’t want to publish a record in the DNS system, use the -n flag like so:

sckt -n 22

sckt will then only allocate an IPv6 address for your service.

For the current list of all options and syntax, check out sckt –help

No IPv6? No problem.

So you set up your sckt client, but you can’t reach your servers? It might be that your network doesn’t support IPv6. We’ve got your back with an HTTP proxy at


The hard non-Python dependencies are libsodium >= 1.0.0 and zeromq >= 4.0. On Raspbian, Debian and Ubuntu systems, binaries are provided by

### Debian and Ubuntu (including Raspbian)

First, add the “Sckt Corporation Build Service” key to apt like so:

gpg –keyserver –recv 54EB5086 gpg –export 54EB5086 | sudo apt-key add -

Next, set up the apt repositories.

sudo apt-add-repository “deb <distro> main” sudo apt-get update && apt-get install python-sckt-client

Depending on the distribution you’re running, change <distro>:

  • wheezy on Raspbian, and Debian Wheezy
  • jessie on Debian Jessie and Sid
  • trusty on Ubuntu Trusty (14.04) and Utopic (14.10)

### Arch Linux

Every dependency is available in the main Arch repositories. You just have to install them first.

pacman -S libsodium zeromq python2-pyzmq python2-tornado python2-pip pip2.7 install sckt-client

### The pip way

Install the hard dependencies. _Make sure zeromq is built against libsodium._

Assuming you’ve got Python 2.7, Pip, and compilers set up, you’ll need to

pip install sckt-client
