View Full Version : ssh support script with bash

November 5th, 2009, 03:05 PM
Hey guys

I'm working on a little support script so users can run the script and wait for me to connect to them remotely. This so I don't have to edit there router configs to port forwarding or stuff like that which makes them more vulnerable for attacks.

couple of questions:
Is it possible to show my MOTD even with the -N option added to the ssh command?

I've set the shell of the support account to noshell is this advice in this case?

and last, any nice tips from people who are doing the same?

function connect {
echo "Zorg dat u contact heeft met de beheerder"
echo "SSH tunnel word opgebouwd"
ssh server.junke.nl -l support -R 2222:localhost:22 -N -X -Y

if which sshd > /dev/null; then connect
echo "SSH server niet gevonden, nu installeren? [Y/n]"
read item
case "$item" in
y|Y|*) sudo apt-get install openssh-server
n|N) echo "Zonder kunnen we je niet helpen, Bye Bye";;
