It is composed of a client and a server. The client is written in pure C. The server is written in go language and the front-end interface is written in iview & Vue.

You can access your terminals from anywhere via the web. Differentiate your different terminals by device ID(If the ID is not set, the MAC address of your device is used).

rtty is very suitable for remote maintenance your or your company's thousands of Linux devices deployed around the world.


  • Simple to deployment and easy to use
  • Access different devices based on device ID
  • Provide a dashboard to visualize online devices
  • Fully-featured terminal based on Xterm.js
  • Support transfer file with lrzsz
  • SSL support: openssl, mbedtls, CyaSSl(wolfssl)
  • Support Execute a command remote
  • The client is very small, suitable for embedded Linux: rtty(20.1K) + libev(48.5K) + libuwsc(24.4K) + libwolfssl(595.9K) = 688.9K

Dependencies for Client side

How to install and run the Client - rtty

For Linux distribution: Ubuntu, Debian, ArchLinux, Centos


wget -qO- | sudo bash

Command-line Options

Usage: rtty [option]
  -i ifname    # Network interface name - Using the MAC address of
                      the interface as the device ID
  -I id        # Set an ID for the device(Maximum 63 bytes, valid character:letters
                      and numbers and underlines and short lines) - If set,
                      it will cover the MAC address(if you have specify the ifname)
  -h host      # Server host
  -p port      # Server port
  -a           # Auto reconnect to the server
  -v           # verbose
  -d           # Adding a description to the device(Maximum 126 bytes)
  -s           # SSL on

  -D           # Run in the background

Run RTTY(Replace the following parameters with your own parameters)

sudo rtty -I 'My-device-ID' -h 'your-server' -p 5912 -a -v -s -d 'My Device Description'

For Embedded Linux Platform

You need to cross compiling by yourself

For OpenWRT


Use your web browser to access your server: https://your-server-host:5912, then click the connection button

You can easily embed RTTY into your existing platform: https://your-server-host:5912/#/?id=your-id

Automatic login: https://your-server:5912/#/?id=device-id&username=device-username&password=device-password

Execute a command remote


curl -k https://your-server:5912/cmd -d '{"devid":"test","username":"test","password":"123456","cmd":"ls","params":["/"],"env":{}}'



var data = {devid: 'test', username: 'test', password: '123456', cmd: 'ls', params: ['/'], env: {}};
$.post('https://your-server:5912/cmd', JSON.stringify(data), function(r) {console.log(r)});


var data = {devid: 'test', username: 'test', password: '123456', cmd: 'ls', params: ['/'], env: {}};'https://your-server:5912/cmd', JSON.stringify(data)).then(function (response) {
}).catch(function (error) {
