Install Anyterm for remote terminal access without SSH

Filed under
Software
HowTos

Anyterm allows you to have secure terminal access to a server without needing any special software on a client machine beyond a Web browser. For example, with Anyterm you can open a terminal into your server from an Internet cafe. Because Anyterm uses a pseudo-terminal for communication with the shell, you can run most command-line tools from an Anyterm terminal running inside a Web browser.

On the server side you can either install the Anyterm software yourself or use a server provided by my.anyterm.org for about a $20 per year subscription fee. Two main drawbacks of installing Anyterm on your own server are that it is an Apache module, so you have to have access to install those, and you have to handle security lockdown yourself.

security issues and alternatives

prior to using a web ssh client you should be aware of the way these tools work and the security implications the use of them might have. overviews on security issues can be found on anyterm.org, serFISH.com and gotoSSH.com, for example.

if you decide to use third-party services, you have to find a service provider you trust: apart from my.anyterm.org ($20/year) also www.serfish.com (free) and gotossh.com ($5/month) are available.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
