You probably access you linux machines via SSH using a client like Putty.
With Shell In A Box, you get the same SSH access but without any client, you just use a browser that shows you the the SSH connection via HTTPS.
This might be usefull in some scenario, so I’m going to show you how to set up it bellow.
To install just type:
sudo apt-get install shellinabox
and that’s it once it finished installing, Shell In A Box is running, just go to you browser and enter this
and you should get this
now just login and that’s it.
If you want to change something (ex: the 4200 port) you just edit this file:
# Should shellinaboxd start automatically
# TCP port that shellinboxd's webserver listens on
# Parameters that are managed by the system and usually should not need
# Any optional arguments (e.g. extra service definitions). Make sure
# that that argument is quoted.
# Beeps are disabled because of reports of the VLC plugin crashing
# Firefox on Linux/x86_64.
sudo service shellinabox restart
to load the new configuration.
