Remote Web Terminal: WebSSH

The’s device manager lets you connect remotely to online devices through a reverse SSH tunnel.

The WebSSH feature secures you from exposing SSH ports on your device network and prevents you from compromising security. It is a fully- featured, browser-based TTY that you can use to analyze system logs and for debugging applications.

To start a remote SSH connection to a device, make sure the device is online and has an SSH service installed on it.

To enable the SSH service on Ubuntu 16.04, execute the following commands in the device’s terminal in sequence:

sudo apt-get install openssh-server
sudo systemctl start ssh
sudo systemctl status ssh

On console:

  1. On the left navigation bar, click DEVICES.
  2. Select the device you want to initiate an SSH session on.
  3. Click the SSH tab to view a live remote SSH session.
