SSH client that can be run in a web page

Hi there,
I am producing an admin interface for us to use at work to manage our servers from outside of the office.  Most of it is database driven so creating the pages to manage that has been easy.

What I am now after is a way to embed an SSH client into a web page that connects to the linux boxes via the web server, not the client PC.  This will allow us to log into the boxes from remote locations where we don't have access to VPN and SSH clients.

All I can find on the internet is browser based java SSH clients but I need one that actually connects to the servers from the Web Server as we do not expose the SSH ports externally.

Does anybody know of a product that can do this on IIS6 using ASP.NET?

Hi Solost,

There're some commercial lib for asp.net but I guess you didn't mean them.
If your purpose is only for your teams only, I thought you should use plink.exe (part of famous putty package) then you in the console output directly in your web pages.

See the usage of plink here:

Download links:

Hope this help,

Yes, I had thought of using Plink but if I can I'd rather have a proper console window as opposed to one off commands.

What is this commercial lib that you are speaking of?

ssh factory for .NET:

There're only two opensource lib is sharpssh and granados, but it's seem not full features. You may take a look at this guy project: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/IP/terminalcontrol.aspx
