    how did i use this shellinabox to acces AWS server with a private key?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      I don’t think it support private key feature, but you can restrict access to specific IP address on specific port….

    @Craig – useful for remote access. My employers block all ports outbound except web via proxy which does ssl termination For packet inspection.

    Hopefully this will work to access my machines at home

  3. Craig says:

    Why? What is wrong with ‘ssh’ from the terminal. So you are installing an additional server on your system just to support something it should already do?

    I don’t get it!

    Now if its just for the, hey I am a hacker and I like to do bizzarre stuff … then that makes some sense :o)

      For example I want to access to my server while I am playing. Steam does not allow own apps (like PuTTy) on Steam overlay -> I want to check IRC/Facebook chat (via BitlBee on my server) when I am waiting to CS:go round to end.

    Awesome! No more putty. :)

    Is there a way to login a user while starting this interface?
