Projects / Anyterm


Anyterm provides a terminal emulator on a Web page using Javascript and a server daemon. The daemon typically runs behind an HTTP proxy; it forks a shell and communicates with the script using XMLHTTP on port 80 or securely using SSL. This provides you with shell access to your machine from almost any Web browser, even when firewalls are in the way. The service provides access without the need to install anything on your servers.

Recent releases

  •  06 Feb 2009 14:57

    Release Notes: This release fixes execution on Linux 2.4 systems (provided that you also compile on a 2.4 system) and fixes compilation with compilers that don't know about their processor's atomic operations.

    •  08 Jan 2009 00:32

      Release Notes: This release reorganizes the code to remove a couple of troublesome library dependencies, fixes a bug that had prevented use in some CGI applications, and adds a man page.

      •  28 Oct 2008 13:19

        Release Notes: This version fixes two build bugs, one affecting SuSE users, and works around a probable Firefox 3 bug that had caused an unnecessary horizontal scrollbar to be shown. This version also builds on Mac OS X.

        •  20 Oct 2008 23:52

          Release Notes: In this release, the old Apache module has been removed. Using the stand-alone Anyterm daemon in combination with Apache's mod_proxy is now the recommended configuration. Although this is at least as stable and feature-full as the old Apache module, the documentation remains less mature; installation reports are welcome.

          •  15 Aug 2008 17:29

            Release Notes: You can now specify a URL to which the browser will be redirected once the terminal is closed. Copying to the clipboard should now work on Mozilla-based browsers, if the appropriate security settings are in force. Delete and backspace should now behave as expected in more programs. An untested change may make keyboard input work on Safari again.

            I love this project!
            This is my saving grace being behind an insanely strict firewall at work. nano, top, mc, NO PROBLEM!

            You might need to make some generic symlinks for g++ and libapr as their binaries are appended with version numbers which causes compiler suicides.
