Amazon IoT Device Management Secure Tunneling now provides support for multiple simultaneous TCP connections, unlocking new use cases for advanced troubleshooting on remote devices. Secure Tunneling allows customers to establish bidirectional communication to remote devices using SSH, VNC or RDP. Now with multiple simultaneous TCP connections, customers can establish tunnels to access HTTP-based applications that typically make several connections for assets like images, javascript, and css. For example, you can now remotely access a web application that is running on a device to gain real-time telemetry or perform administrative tasks in a web-based GUI.

Simultaneous TCP connections using Secure Tunneling is available to customers through the Amazon Web Services Console and Amazon CLI in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To use this feature, customers need to install the V3 local proxy. To learn more about this feature, see the documentation.
