Ajaxterm is a web based terminal. See https://github.com/antonylesuisse/qweb and http://antony.lesuisse.org/software/ajaxterm/HEADER.html
/usr/bin/yum install --enablerepo=smecontribs smeserver-ajaxterm
expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf service ajaxterm restart service httpd-e-smith restart
after every ajaxterm restart you should issue a httpd-e-smith restart otherwise you will obtain a proxy error and httpd will disable the redirector.

- Login in to browser prompt as admin.
- Login to shell access as any user, NB, you may need to enter the servername at Host and port and SSH Port depending on your configuration.
The Ajaxterm service is configurable by properties of the ajaxterm record in the SME server configuration database.
Restrict to login on localhost
config setprop Ajaxterm allowOnlyLocalhost yes service ajaxterm restart
Only a login to local host is possible (default setting). Ajaxterm runs the 'su --login USER' command to login. You are asked for a username and password
Allow ssh login on all hosts
config setprop Ajaxterm allowOnlyLocalhost no service ajaxterm restart
Ajaxterm runs the 'ssh' command to login to a host. You are asked for hostname or IP, ssh port, username and password. If localhost or 127.0.0.1 is given as the host Ajaxterm falls back to the 'su --login USER' login command.
Browser login (Basic Auth)
By default login with user admin is required on browser login. You can change this to any other user or a list of users separated by blanks.
config setprop Ajaxterm basicAuthUsers "user [user] ..." expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf service httpd-e-smith restart
By default the size of the terminal is 80 x 25 characters. Use the following commands to set a new size.
config setprop Ajaxterm width NEWWIDTH config setprop Ajaxterm height NEWHEIGHT service ajaxterm restart
Note: Increasing the size may decrease the speed.
The default web alias is ajaxterm. You can change it to any other name:
config setprop Ajaxterm webAlias NEWALIAS expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf service httpd-e-smith restart
Then point your browser to the new URL: https://yourdomain.com/NEWALIAS/index.html
Ajaxterm service port
By default Ajaxterm runs as a service (a python script) listening on port 8022. You can change the port using the following commands:
config setprop Ajaxterm servicePort NEWPORT expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf service httpd-e-smith restart service ajaxterm restart
This removes the installed Ajaxterm package.
service ajaxterm stop /usr/bin/yum erase smeserver-ajaxterm expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf service httpd-e-smith restart
