On-prem data with VPN/VPC

A step-by-step guide to using Labelbox with data on your hard drive for Mac OSX and Linux. First we’ll start a HTTP server running locally to serve up the files, then we’ll generate a CSV of links to the files and upload them to Labelbox.

  1. Place all files in a single folder on your hard drive.

  2. Use this command to get the IP address of your computer.

    ifconfig en0 | grep inet | grep -v inet6 | awk '{print $2}'
  3. Start an HTTP server running locally to serve up the files.

    #To use Python  
    python -m SimpleHTTPServer
    #To use NodeJS: 
    npm install -g http-server; http-server -p 8000
    #*Note in this example ```8000```  is the port we are serving from.*
  4. Generate a CSV file containing URLs and upload them to Labelbox. If you visit http://<your-ip-address>:8000 you should see a directory listing with all your files. Now cd into the directory with all of your files and run the below command that will generate data.csv.

    IP_ADDRESS=$(ifconfig en0 | grep inet | grep -v inet6 | awk '{print $2}')
    CSV=$(echo "Data URL"; for fileName in $(ls); do echo http://$IP_ADDRESS:8000/$fileName; done)
    echo "$CSV" > data.csv
  5. Upload data.csv to Labelbox. Note: only users on the same network can see your data when self-hosting. If the local server is stopped, you will lose access to your data while using Labelbox.

To enable teams of remote workers to access on-premises or private cloud data, use a VPN. Here are some resources on setting up a VPN for popular hosting providers:
