Projects / CGI-Shell


CGI-Shell provides a shell using CGI, so everyone who has a CGI directory on a Web server can also have a shell on it. It's comparable to telnet or SSH.

Release Notes: This version adds PHP support, so you can start the CGI-Shell server with PHP if you don't have CGI on your Web server. A configuration file has been added.

Release Notes: This version is a complete re-write in C. It provides a real shell, starting a little server on the Webserver and connecting to it. It works fine for almost all programs, including vi, more, man, passwd, etc.

Release Notes: In this version, it is possible to set aliases in cgi- shell.rc. Moreover, people whose Web server configuration allows only *.cgi programs (but no *.pl) can use cgi-shell now with the -cgi option.

Release Notes: This version contains some bugfixes and small improvements. Moreover a PHP-variant is now available, which means that you can also use CGI-Shell if your Web server supports PHP, even if it doesn't provide you with CGI access.
