    How different is that then SSHing into your box???

    On any computer, anywhere I go, if I want to get a terminal on my box, I either SSH into it (which is pretty common to be found on any linux box) or download a small app called puTTY.exe (for windows). Then, as long as you have a PC with an internet connection, you can get just that...

    I agree with deek. In fact, there are Java SSH clilent applets (like MindTerm) that you can put on your website instead of a CGI script, if you insist on using it in a web browser.
