# Tunneled Redis Connections

Redis is a popular in-memory data structure store. It can be run locally or configured as a single or distributed standalone service.

# Basic Connection

  1. Create a TCP tunnel, using either pomerium-cli or the Pomerium Desktop client:

  2. Initiate your Redis connection, pointing to localhost:

    redis-cli -h localhost -p 6379

This demonstrates access to a Redis server through Pomerium from the redis-cli tool. Pomerium Enterprise users can utilize Service Accounts to enable secure machine-to-machine communication of Redis services.
