Commonly you have a web server running on your local development machine, and you want to connect to that site from your device. If the mobile device and the development machine are on the same network, this is straightforward. But this may be difficult in some cases, like on a restricted corporate network.
This is what I ran into at work.I have been trying to get my web application that runs on my my localhost to be accessible on my mobile device.

I found an article about chrome experimental features that was explaining you how to enable reverse port forwarding in chrome. I have been following the article until it said to tick the checkbox for "Enable reverse port forwarding" in "developer tools > settings > experiments". I found the tick list but could not find that option. Does anyone know how I can enable this reverse port forwarding?
