This is a bit of a weird one (or I'm missing something obvious).
Is there a web based terminal/ssh client?
Today, a new answer appeared from a new contributor with a suggestion for (yet) another alternative. The answer was quickly downvoted 4 times and flagged as spam.
Here's the link to the answer for those that have 10k rep and can see it.
The answer is simply:
I used this freeware web based ssh client for all my OPs tasks managing almost hundreds VMs and stand-alone Linux servers: ... [redacted in case it really is spam and I'm missing something]
I'm confused as to how this is spam (or even worth being downvoted), given that it seems to me to be a direct answer to the question that was asked?
And that's not the only one:
- Another answer on the same question from around 5 years ago was also downvoted, flagged as spam, and deleted for the same reason.
- And this one was mod-deleted.
There are a number of other answers that have been deleted that don't actually answer the question that was asked, and I have no problem with that. And then there are answers that are almost the same as these, but point to different web-based tools, that are left open.
But why is it that some actual attempts to answer to the question being asked seem to be deleted and/or flagged as spam? Am I misreading something here?
Side-note: I would suggest closing the question as it doesn't, IMHO, have anything to do with Ubuntu. The OP is simply asking for a web-based terminal that they can access from Windows. The target OS doesn't matter here.
But let's not punish those who attempt, in good-faith, to answer the question that was asked.
