SSH Management Console Script

Hi Guys

SSH Management Console Script naming “sshc” is a simple program that you can use it instead of putty connection manager , securecrt , PAC manager or any SSH manager that installed on linux distributions .

This program is so simple, secure and accessible from shell . I mean You can install it on your server for connection to another servers from a linux server .

Note : This Script Written By My Best Friend Iman Homayouni [e2ma3n] .

How Can I Install this Program on My Server ?

At the First We Must Wget sshc on our server . ( in this case my operating system is centos 6.7 )


At The Next Step According to README file We Should install Prerequisites that listed Bellow :

0. openssl
1. sshpass
2. mkdir
3. cp
4. rm
5. whoami
6. ping
7. curl
8. ssh
9. echo
10. cat
11. joe

yum -y install openssl sshpass curl ssh joe

Then We Must install sshc with :

[root@srv10829 sshc-master]# chmod +x
[root@srv10829 sshc-master]# ./
        sudo ./ -i [for install program]
        sudo ./ -u [for uninstall program]
        sudo ./ -c [check dependencies on system]
[root@srv10829 sshc-master]#

Checking Dependencies

We can Check Dependencies with -c switch :

[root@srv10829 sshc-master]# ./ -c
[+] ------------------------------------------------ [+]
[+] check dependencies on system:
[+] openssl found
[+] sshpass found
[+] mkdir found
[+] cp found
[+] rm found
[+] whoami found
[+] ping found
[+] curl found
[+] ssh found
[+] echo found
[+] cat found
[+] joe found
[+] ------------------------------------------------ [+]
[root@srv10829 sshc-master]#


[root@srv10829 sshc-master]# ./ -i
[!] Warning: run program and edit your database.
[!] Warning: defaul password is 'sshc'
[+] Done
[root@srv10829 sshc-master]#

after install We Should Run “sshc” command to complete sshc database (defaul password is ‘sshc’)


after typing password we must select 0 for editing database :

[+] Enter password:

 0) Edite Database

[+] Select your server/option or type quit for exit:0

default editor of sshc database is joe , for saving settings we should press ctrl+k+x


Note : Add Your Servers According to the above Example .

After Save, Console shows it :

File /etc/sshc/ saved
[+] encrypt new database, Please type your password:
[+] Done, New database saved and encrypted
[+] ------------------------------------------------------------------- [+]

The program requests default password for encrypting database file . lets run again sshc for connecting our server :


We Have 3 Options for Direct Connection to server or Accept our public ip on server firewall ( iptables ) or 1 and 2 options in 3 .

This is Encrypted Database File :

[root@srv10829 sshc-master]# cat /etc/sshc/sshc.database.en
[root@srv10829 sshc-master]#
