Trouble accessing Rancher container from Windows machine


I am following the Lab 1 instructions to setup ONAP.

Step 13: I ran the following on a gcloud shell

gcloud compute ssh --zone "northamerica-northeast1-a" "onap-test-01" -- -N -D localhost:5000

Step 14: setup proxy setting as described in the document

Everything went well upto step 14 on page 11 - setting up Proxy on Firefox.

I am not able to access the Rancher UI from my Windows 10 laptop by accessing at

The connection times out.

"The connection has timed out

The server at is taking too long to respond."

Is there any more config needed on a Windows 10 machine to setup a SOCK5 proxy for this?

Any alternate approach to getting to this UI?


I tried ssh local forwarding by setting up a tunnel to with the following but it did not work:

gcloud compute ssh --zone "northamerica-northeast1-a" "onap-test-01" -- -N -L 5000:192.168.122
.231:8880 -vvv


Rancher server container seems to be up:

aarna@ubuntu:~$ docker ps -a

CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES ac4e4eaaedaa rancher/server:v1.6.10 "/usr/bin/entry /usr/" 3 hours ago Up 3 hours 3306/tcp,>8080/tcp rancher_server


Appreciate any help resolving this.
