Running Local Tests

Developing apps on localhost is quick and efficient. The drawback is that localhost is not a publicly-accessible address on the Internet, so the browsers in the Sauce Labs cloud can't load and test your app. The solution is to use Sauce ConnectSauce Connect uses a secure tunnel protocol that gives specific Sauce machines access to your local network. You can also use it to test applications that are inside your corporate firewall. Sauce Connect is not required to run tests on Sauce Labs, only in situations where the application or website you want to test is on your local machine or behind a firewall.
