FAR - (Actual) Remote Shell for CC

FAR allows you to access a shell session on a remote computer quickly and easily.


Screenshots:

Spoiler

Setup:

1. Download FAR onto two computers, through the utility of your choice.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/InternetUnexplorer/CCJam-2016/master/far far


2. On the computer you want to be the host, run

far password

and follow the prompts.

This will setup the password used to connect to that computer.


3. On the same host computer, run

far server

to start listening for connections.


4. On the other computer, run

far client <ID>

with <ID> being the ID of the host computer we just setup.

If all goes according to plan, you should be presented with a shell prompt. You are now connected to the remote computer!

Note: If the remote shell does not entirely fit on your screen, you can use SHIFT+ALT+ARROW KEYS to move around :)

When you want to disconnect from the remote computer, quit the shell session by typing exit or by terminating it.


If you have any questions/ideas please ask them here!

Can you use SuperTextDownloader to get the file?

I think so? You should be able to download the file using wget, so SuperTextDownloader should work as well, though I'm not sure. I can also put a link on pastebin if that helps. I'm planning to update the topic when I have time, because no pics = no clicks, and because the formatting is a bit messed up, so I will probably add more installation options then. Glad you like it!

I just added FAR (as well as a bunch of other CCJam 2016 programs) to the store list for Super Text Downloader. Also, methinks your download link should read...
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/InternetUnexplorer/CCJam-2016/master/far far
(or "std ld far far"...hehehehehehee)

....instead of what it has now. You put the website link for FAR, not the raw text! You silly!

Oh dear, my brain seems to be broken :) I will fix that ASAP!

Nsh (by Lyqyd) does this already, but it's still cool.
