What’s my optimal choice for remote access to my localhost sites?


I need tech support from a plugin vendor and they need remote access. I am running the latest versions of WordPress with Elementor on a Windows 10 machine and host using localhost. Specifically I am using Laragon.

A Laragon URL to load the site locally typically looks like this: sitename.local:8080. Laragon provides native support for remote access by means of ngrok called by a menu selection used to "share."

So I installed the free version of ngrok. I used Laragon to share and Laragon calls ngrok that gives me a URL to use for 8 hours. I test the ngrok URL from another remote machine and it loads and I login to the website. Then ngrok bombs out because WordPress/Elementor are generated too many HTTP requests.

The free ngrok plan supports "40 connections/minute" and the next two paid tiers of service support "40 connections/minute."

My question is "Do we have a plugin or any other means to determine how many connections our localhost website is generating before paying for ngrok?" They do offer 15 day payment return but I’d actually like to know how many connections are being made as it may help provide insights regarding performance.

Finally, the big question: "What is my optimal choice for providing remote access to my websites running on localhost?"
