Since many of the places I travel to have firewalls disallowing other than http and https traffic.
So I started researching shellinabox for openSuSE (I run 12.3), but there is remarkably little information https://www.google.com/search?q=shellinabox+opensuse
The first link (on my end) even talks about downloading the source, then compile and install it in
I found out that zypper knows about shellinabox, so this succeeded:
zypper install shellinabox
Now my plan is this:
- run shellinabox in non-secure mode locally
- have apache handle the https to http
So, here I am trying to get this done without relying on yast, as I want to know how to configure this on the console.
This gives a whole bunch of questions, starting with these:
chkconfigthe right command to configure
shellinaboxto run as a service and start after boot? It seems to indicate that currently it is not configured as such, but apache is:
snip:/home/jeroenp # chkconfig shellinabox shellinabox off snip:/home/jeroenp # chkconfig apache2 apache2 on
rcshellinabox start will start the service at port 4200, as
nmap shows nicely:
snip:/etc/shellinabox/certs # nmap -sV -p 4200 localhost Starting Nmap 6.25 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2014-05-31 22:14 CEST Nmap scan report for localhost (127.0.0.1) Host is up (0.000091s latency). PORT STATE SERVICE VERSION 4200/tcp open http ShellInABox httpd
Service detection performed. Please report any incorrect results at http://nmap.org/submit/ .
Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 11.31 seconds
- what is the configuration file to tell shellinabox the local port number, usage of HTTPS and such? There seem to be none generated in
Right now these directories are empty:
The thing is however that http://localhost:4200 is automagically redirected to https://localhost:4200/ (which I don’t want, as I want apache2 to do the https handling for me so I can share port 443 with other https traffic).
- is this still the correct way to have apache as a front-end for shellinabox: http://www.linuxintro.org/wiki/Shell…n_a_web_server
More questions will obviously follow (:
