    whats throwing me off is the fact that in /var/lib/shellinabox there are two files certificate.pem and certificate-$domain.pem
    every time I connect to localhost:4200 it generates those two files, even if I delete them
    so I have combined privkey.pem and cert.pem into one file
    then linked that file to /var/lib/shellinabox certificate-localhost.pem and certificate-$domain.pem
    now I assume I have to change the ownership options on the files
    using chmod 600 cert-*.pem
    alas, some progress has been made "ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH" using localhost and dns
    tried chmod 644, the same permissions used by /etc/letsencrypt/archive/* and also created certificate.pem
    service shellinabox status --- > Cannot read valid certificate from "/var/lib/shellinabox/certificate.pem"! Check file permissions and file format.
    for 600 and 644
    however when i chmod 777 the files it all works as expected!
    looks like it needs the local executable flag set
    744 is what im using now

    localhost + SSL would never work, you'd have to use your Let's Encrypt domain

    Hi so I'm trying to figure out what the latest version of shellinabox is - when I run shellinaboxd --version I get

    ShellInABox version 2.20

    I'm trying to embed shellinabox in my website
    so I used <iframe>
    how can I get cmds from shellinabox?
    already applied.
    please help me. thanks
    who have experience on that?
    @SkyClean I have done something like that, what you would mostlikely need to do is set a proxy config inside your Apacheconfig, and set the port you have for Shellinabox to something like MyDomain.com/shell and iframe that, so that the iframe can be set to MyDomain.com/shell
    but i need help doing that again, i had done it before but i forgot how to exactly
    And thats not a bad idea, i just might do that,

    hey guys I have been trying to setup my raspberry pi to be a home file server and i am having an issue where shellinabox is set up and will show up in a browser but as soon as it opens in two seconds it says session closed. I am running it on archlinuxarm.

    Hey, I was wondering if it would be possible to use Shellinabox to stream a terminal without allowing input or giving a login prompt. Basically, I want to livestream a terminal rogue-like on my website without having to actually stream bandwidth-heavy video.

    I noticed at my customer's organisation that there is a proxy breaking the https flow. Certificates do not belong to the https web site, but to the organisation itself. They are using it for scanning data and avoid viruses and guess other things.

    I provide some cloud services, which I manage through Shell in a Box: an Ajax terminal emulator, over https. Obviously, the passwords I use will be read in clear text thanks to the proxy.

    How can I avoid this weakness? Could we imagine to implement end-to-end encryption at Shell in a Box level?

    I already did that in my fork and built a .deb package, but I'd like to have an officialish one :)
