How can I open the Jaeger website in a remote browser, not the localhost machine

#1

The official document said:
We can access the Jaeger website by the following action:
Kubectl port-forward -n istio-system $(kubectl get pod -n istio-system -l app=jaeger -o jsonpath=’{.items[0].metadata.name}’) 16686:16686 &

Then can use http://localhost:16686.
But the localhost is a Linux machine, there haven’t a browser.
I must open the browser on a remote machine.
How can I do?
thanks.

OK, thank you @douglas-reid
I have another question:
I have established a TCP micro-services cluster using JAVA platform Vert.x.
Can I use Istio to manage them?
as I know, the Istio is mainly used for HTTP micro-services cluster.

I have never used Vert.x and I don’t know anything about it really. This FAQ entry does not inspire confidence, however.

I am not aware of any means for tracing/routing messages sent over Vert.x event bus, but you can still use Vert.x as the application container. You can convert the communication that needs Istio management to HTTP, though, and use event bus only within cluster of microservices.

Note that all traffic will pass through Envoy (and that will just shovel it from socket to socket) unless you modify the routing rules.
