Remote access a Linux server - BASH
 
So a few months ago I saw a guy on a 8703e use like a special BASH on his blackberry and access some linux servers. Anyone know where I can get get this program for my blackberry?

Also I knew an admin but lost contact with him who had a program on his Linux box that monitored specified services/servers (mostly steam), and if the service/server crashed the the program would send him a lvl 1 message and he'd get over to the server and fix the problem. The problem is I lost contact with him before I got my blackberry so I don't know what the name of the program was. Anyone know of what I'm talking about?

You are referring to a SSH application, not Bash - bash is the shell software running on the remote server. SSH is used to make remote connections to servers and get a commandline where you can get work done. I, for instance, live in SSH sessions every day all day - it's my bread & butter.

There are two - MidpSSH (open source, free, works but isn't the best) and Rove MobileSSH (commercial, works great, a bit expensive).

Thx for the links.

Your right, I meant SSH. What about the program that runs on the server to sends notifications? Any idea on that?

There's a lot of them out there that are of varying complexity and quality, that friend may have written his own if it were trivial monitoring. At work I use Nagios (nagios.org) to monitor the entire network and all the various services spread out across many servers. Nagios doesn't look very pretty, but it works really, really well.

Well the only contact I had with him was over instant messenger. He was the admin on a CS server I played on, I was only a mod so I didn't do anything special but he was one of the co-owners. The setup that they had was 3 boxes 1 a CS server, 1 a Natural Selection server, and the last one was the webserver with the forum and an elaborate configuration on it. All three were linux and each had the monitor running on each box. Now if a daemon stopped working, froze, or restarted itself, he would be notified.

So basically I'm looking for something fairly simplistic.

This is great thanks! midpSSH works amazingly well, only have to set the font size to LCD 4x7 to approximate the normal screen width on my comp.
