There seems to be a lot of sites posting the same story about a new gui for easily managing ssh between many machines. It sound so simple I don't know why this hasn't been done before. This plus Nextcloud Hub could be the easiest server setup ever! 😀
Can you show what is this GUI?
4D42 I haven't looked at it myself. I'm still working at sea and the internet connection here is worse than dial up. I'll have a look once I'm on dry land.
Here is another link to basically the same story that's popping up all over the place.
I'll give you the low down once I'm back home in a week or so, In the meantime I've seen a .deb package you could try out, and I think its on github too.. Happy Snowflake Gui SSHing...
I just realized that Snowflake is the name of the GUI! hahahahahhah
I was thinking it was a GUI for Snowflakes..... I was like 'what the fuck?!' xD
4D42 I thought the same thing before I read the story lol. It does look useful for quick drag and drops to a RPI
I know people use PuTTy and things like that for SSHing, but I never understood what people needed that ~/.ssh/config didn't already take care of. Way simpler than a GUI in my opinion.
spacemanspiffy Sometimes I see people using PuTTy in Linux! I be like what the hell they are doing 😅
I also find it easier to just ssh user@hostname. Also faster. I hate setting up gui programs for that, it sucks precious life out of my soul. I have to use secureCRT at work....
ssh and sshfs is usually sufficient for me as a computing cluster admin.
Also I thought it was snowflakes lol. Seems interesting though.
And a simple edit in the hosts file allows me to use names instead of ip addresses.
So instead of sshing into 10.2.2.20 (example) i just ssh into Madagascar (example).
Thanks for sharing.
Isn't that like using Damn Small Linux to run Qemu to boot windows ME to load VirtualBox to run Ubuntu to load Boxes to run DSL (again) to run DosBox just so you can load win 3.11 to move files to a floppy?
I'm sure someone in the world thinks this is a good idea, but you can't help everyone...
I never got round to trying it out because my terminal seems to work just fine. I am away back to sea so if anyone else has tried it, please let me know if its any use.
