Smile CLI Telnet server

Before I get a lecture on the security issues of this I'm wondering if it's possible for an amiga 1200 running MiamiDX to serve CLI via telnet? there would be some advantages to me, being able to remotely compile code is the first that springs to mind.

I know that MiamiDX has a fairly clever config program (I wish there was something like this for GNOME!) for adding daemons, and I've already noticed it has a large number of open ports anyway (try telnet to a MiamiDX amiga on port 19!) and the manual is fairly comprehensive but I'm not sure if serving shells is possible without additional software. How would login work, would I need to add scripts and that?

I'm sure this has been done what with the number of BBSes on amigas.

This thread
http://www.mail-archive.com/miamidx-.../msg01719.html

seems to be referring to this, but I'm not sure.

In this one
http://unix.derkeiler.com/Newsgroups...3-07/0784.html

He's using Genesis, but he gets it to issue "Newshell *" for incoming connections on port 23. Sounds about right, but is that possible in MiamiDX?

Okay, that was easy. I should have RTFM properly. You just need to add a user in MiamiDX / Databases / Users with a login shell of Newshell *, and then run
Miami:Miamitelnetd -s 23

then telnet in!

there are some old version of openssh for Amiga 68k:
http://www.chernoff.org/amiga/
http://www.chernoff.org/amiga/Amiga_OpenSSH.readme
this one also has a sshd, and the readme says, it might run with AmiTCP 4.0. worth a look, i guess

Edit: a Workaround described in the readme states, sshd may work, using "Miamitelnetd" as a wrapper. not much to do, it seems, since you already have Miami installed. i guess.

thanks for the links! I'm trying to get an ssh client working first, but it's complicated.

This is all behind NAT and a software firewall anyway before you get to the a1200's subnet so I'm not too worried security wise about occasional telnet for the moment.

Will do, once I get back from holidays. Showed my dad remotely logging into my A1200 (through another ssh server) over the internet and he refused to believe it was real!
