You can change the http tunnel type to your needs like tcp, tls or udp and change --to to your localhost service, if your local server is running on port 80 then you should forward the traffic by doing --to 80, localhost:80 , http://localhost:80 or :80.


You can always refer to CLI help command, for instance if you need to know the options you have in the http tunnel, you can do loclx tunnel http --help, or if you need to know how to reserve a domain name you can do loclx domain --help.
