SSH Hosting

This is the main service offered by thunix; SSH (Secure Shell) is typically used to access the server remotely (with the help of a terminal emulator program). This allows users to execute command-line programs & utilities for programming purposes (as is the case with compiling C programs using GCC, creating web pages with vi, etc.,) or for leisure (as is the case of playing the game Angband, using an account to download files with aria2 for later retrieval, etc.). Each account has the following software available:

  • bash, sh, csh, tcsh, zsh & ksh UNIX shells
  • OpenSSH Server
  • Apache HTTP Server
  • Perl & Python script interpreters
  • screen and tmux terminal multiplexer
  • htop system monitor
  • df & pydf disk space analysers
  • GCC & G++ compilers
  • vi, emacs & GNU nano text editors
  • GNU wget download manager
  • aria2 multi-protocol download manager
  • rTorrent BitTorrent client
  • Mutt & fetchmail e-mail clients
  • Lynx, Links & eLinks web browsers
  • CenterIM & irssi IRC clients
  • BSD games & other command-line games
  • CUDA software and OpenCL
  • ZNC and Eggdrop

  • GNU/Linux & Mac OS X users have their own terminal emulator programs built into their operating systems (in the form of command line programs,) while Windows users who use Windows XP & older are fortunate enough to have HyperTerminal included with their operating systems.
