ShellInABox stands in the tradition of programs such as telnet and rlogin. These applications have long been popular with users who had access to low-performance terminal servers or workstations on their desktops, but needed shared remote access to a more powerful server.
While desktop machines have become considerably more powerful, the basic need still exists. One thing has changed though, most sites no longer sport terminal servers and even many popular operating systems no longer ship with adequate terminal emulation.
Even if the system provides all the neccessary features, it might not be possible to connect to remote systems because firewalls prevent conventional programs from establishing a network connection.
Using ShellInABox, your server can now be reached from any computer on the net that runs a modern webbrowser. The only requirement on the client side is Java support. Local proxies will automatically be used if this is required by firewalls.
