Reddit: HELP: How to Install OpenSSH OFFLINE On Mint 17

Sunday 28th of September 2014 08:40:35 PM

For an assignment, I need to install SSH while not connected to the Internet (teacher is self-described as evil). So, apt-get install openssh-server is not an option. I have to do it the hard way.

Tried to download the package from Mint's repository

Tried these instructions

Keep getting an error related to OpenSSL.

I'm still a noob and don't know what to do to get the service up.

I got it to work in Ubuntu by downloading and installing OpenSSH Server and OpenSSH Client from, which was relatively easy.

Reddit: I started a [Bash] web framework

Sunday 28th of September 2014 06:13:04 PM


I have started working on a framework for building web applications with Bash, since I needed to brush up my Linux skills.

Basically you should be able to run whatever process you need on the server and pipe the output to the HTTP response.

I have mainly worked on the router since now, and I am aware that this will not handle any concurrency, since I am using one instance of netcat.

I am interested to hear your toughts if you stop by. Thanks!
