vagrant share – sharing a vagrant launched headless VM service on the public interwebz

Lest I forget (which I had…):

vagrant share lets you launch a VM using vagrant and share the environment using ngrok in three ways:

  • via public URLs (expose your http ports to the web, rather than locally);
  • via ssh;
  • via vagrant connect (connect to any exposed VM port from a remote location).

So this could be handy for remote support with students… If we tell them to install the vagrant share plugin, then we can offer remote support…
