WebShell is a web-based shell.
You'll get full access to a shell on the server, so you can use it e.g. to connect to other computers using ssh or use an terminal based chat client.
The server is written in Python and is very easy to set up on Linux, Mac OS X, BSD, Solaris, and any Unix that runs python 2.7.
WebShell is based on Ajaxterm.
Ensure python 2.7.X and OpenSSL are installed on your system. You will also have to install the pyOpenSSL python extensions to OpenSSL.
Get the WebShell code:
git clone https://github.com/xypiie/WebShell
Next, you need to generate a server certificate. From the WebShell directory. Therefor you need to open make_certificate.cfg in your favorite editor and replace following variables by real content:
- MY_PASS <- put some secret password here
- FQDN <- replace it by the hostname you are going to use in browser to access the page, e.g. my_host.com if you want to address it on https://my_host.com:8022
- CHALLENGE_PASS <- some other secret password
Then enter this command to quickly generate a certificate:
Now issue this command to run the WebShell server:

WebShell communications are as secure as a regular secure shell, as both ssh and WebShell are on top of the SSL/TLS layer.
The code has been tested against buffer overflow and denial of service. If you find any problem, please report it on the webpage.
