    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?

    @novelkumar I suggest using a reverse proxy with OAuth 2.0 if you want to secure shellinthebox for public facing internet access.

    hey I am trying to run shellinabox on devuan linux ASCII, I've tried the .deb file from the debian buster repositories, the .deb file from the devuan repositories, and compiling it from source, and it still doesn't work for some reason. When I do "sudo service shellinaboxd status" it doesn't recognize it, but when I do "sudo service shellinabox status" it just skips to the next line.
    What should I do here?

    Hey, is anyone active here?
    I was wanting to use shellinabox as a way to live-stream things happening on a terminal without the viewer being able to make input.
    How would I go about disabling keyboard input with shellinabox? Thanks.

    Hi. can any body help me about autologin in shellinabox on startup. And also, how to automatically execute commands in terminal

    Hi, I have installed SIAB 2.20 version in redhat linux server to use the CGI mode using shell script which works fine. But, when I do the same in Ubuntu 18.04 server its throwing "Unable to connect" error in browser. It's development environment so I even disabled firewall.

    Here is the link I followed to set up SIAB: https://www.tecmint.com/shell-in-a-box-a-web-based-ssh-terminal-to-access-remote-linux-servers/
    my shell script similar to this one: shellinabox/shellinabox#260
    command I'm using in script: shellinaboxd -t --cgi -s /:SSH:$parms
    URL to access script: http://<server-ip>/cgi-bin/ssh.sh?<destination-server-ip>


    Please let me know is there any known issues with SIAB 2.20 and Ubuntu 18.04 versions?
    If not please help me out to make it work.

    thanks in advance!

    Hey guys
    when i tried running following command
    shellinaboxd --port 4201 --disable-ssl

    it do nothing , screen hanged no response comes up..

    first of all you missed equal to "--port=4201"
    you should mention --service which should be either of "LOGIN", "SSH" or "telnet" and then provide hostip you want to login
    command should be like "shellinaboxd --port=4201 --disable-ssl --service=/:LOGIN:<your hostip>"
    Now open browser and enter url as follow "http://<hostip of server running shellinabox>:4201"

    I have a socket connection from react but have no idea on request formatting :(
    @hajdun This is for connecting using web browsing protocol such as Chrome, Chromium, firefox, etc.

    Hello, again. Can someone help ?

    I was able to figure out the issue it was due to Transfer-Encoding: chunked. I used Content-Lenght: for POST and it worked.
    I hope it helps someone.


    I'm getting error message when using SSH in shellinabox as shown below,

    login: root
    command-line line 0: Unsupported option "rhostsrsaauthentication"
    command-line line 0: Unsupported option "rsaauthentication"

    when I searched for issue, there's a suggestion to remove those lines from shellinabox/service.c file (shellinabox/shellinabox#458)

    But, I'm unable to find service.c file may be since I'm using Ubuntu.
    Can you guys let me know how to disable them.
