Ajaxterm - a web based ternimal client.

In previous article I discussed about how to bring the web to terminal. Now I like to tell about how to bring the terminal to web. It will be a good solution for remote access and access the internet through restricted proxy servers and sockets when you are using web based SSH terminal client like Ajaxterm. so the another advantage is you can handle the remote administration tasks.

Ajaxterm is written in python in server side, Ajax/javascript for client side processing and written by Antony Lesuisse.


Ajaxterm runs on Linux, MacOS X, FreeBSD, Solaris, cygwin and any Unix that runs python2.3.

It is easily to install on linux using source packages without compilations.

if you are using debian or ubuntu enter this command on terminal.

sudo apt-get install ajaxterm


If you are install using source packages then goto ajaxterm-0.10 directory using terminal and simply run using ./

If you are using debian then enter this command
sudo /etc/init.d/ajaxterm start
then you can access with http://localhost:8022/ and it will listen port 8022 by default.

then you will get a window same as this.

then you want to configure apache for remote access. Put the following code
in vhost file.
