Can not access webui through ssh

I have ipfs installed on my remote,dedicated server. I can not access the ui at
I believe the problem is related to me using and working on the ipfs install that is on a remote server instead of my local machine.Does anyone know how to fi this, is it done with proxy settings in the browser?

You can do ssh -L 5001:localhost:5001
replace exampleUser with your user on the server and with the server’s address.
Then will work (you will need to keep the ssh connection open for it to relay the API).

ssh -p option (which creates a SOCKS proxy you can configure in your browser) also work but it would relay all of your browser traffic not just the api through the ssh connection.
