Linux Web Shell

The Linux Web Shell is a web-based SSH terminal to access headless (embedded) Linux devices. The Linux Web Shell is implemented as a Mako Server (and Barracuda App Server) application that can export arbitrary Linux command line tools to a web based terminal emulator. This emulator is accessible to any modern web browser and does not require any additional browser plugins.

The following screenshot shows the Linux Web Shell running the GNU Midnight Commander visual file manager.
