I love this app. I need it to access my websocket I wrote in javascript in the linux environment. Google is unfortunately ending support for chrome apps, Which means once that happens, I can't use this, and I won't be able to access my websocket anymore.

The App itself is good, but every time I shut down my computer, it's impossible to open the app (and it doesnt work in the background, even if I choose that as an option). To make it work I have to uninstall and install it again, and set the rules once agian, every time I want to use it.

I have been using for a while, works well. However lately when I shut down my chromebook and reboot, the app will not open. When i click the icon, the chromebook menu disappears but nothing happens. Uninstalling and reinstalling fixes the problem.

Works great. Used it to forward the Folding At Home client port on the Chromebook so that I can control/monitor it from my PC. Definitely going to use this for other purposes that require services to run on the Linux container.

Oh, wow. Thank you for this! This is a totally required functionality for developers on ChromeOS! I was attempting to develop a Django application locally on my Pixel Slate and could _not_ for the life of me get to the site from anything but the local system until I loaded and used this app. That said, since I am developing in the Crostini environment on the Slate, the address is NOT the same as the Android one and for some reason was not in the drop-down options during configuration - I h...
