Follow these steps to setup Runops proxy mode on MacOS:

  1. Install Runops CLI & login:
npm install -g runops
runops login

Download and Install nodejs if npm isn't available.

  1. Login to Runops
runops login
  1. Install rproxy
brew tap runopsio/rproxy
brew install rproxy
  1. Start the proxy
rproxy postgres -c your-database-name
  1. Open your database client and create a connection with the data:
  • Hostname:
  • Username: runops
  • Password: runops
  • Port: 5433

Repeat steps 2 and 4 to restart your connection. For security reasons Runops asks you to login again every few hours. Repeating these steps reestablishes your connection.
