Reverse-ssh-manager allows to manage reverse ssh connections through a web

It also provide a Dockerfile to easily run Reverse-ssh-manager in a docker


You can install reverse-ssh-manager in a virtualenv (with virtualenvwrapper
and pip)::

$ mkvirtualenv reverse-ssh-manager
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ pip install reverse-ssh-manager

Or if you want to contribute some patches to reverse-ssh-manager::

$ git clone
$ cd reverse-ssh-manager/
$ mkvirtualenv reverse-ssh-manager
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ python develop

Then, do the following steps::

(reverse-ssh-manager) $ pip install nodeenv
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ nodeenv -p --prebuilt
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ npm install -g bower gulp
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ npm install
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ bower install
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ gulp


Create a configuration file that looks like::

$ cat path/to/config.cfg

host =
port = 8080
debug = true

Note that the [bottle] section is optional, the defaults are::

host = localhost
port = 8888
server = wsgiref
debug = false


Run the reverse-ssh-manager server by running the following command::

(reverse-ssh-manager) $ reverse-ssh-manager path/to/config.cfg

Then visit http://localhost:8888/, it should display a web interface to manage
reverse ssh tunnels.


To make a new release, do the following steps::

(reverse-ssh-manager) $ npm install
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ bower install
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ gulp
(reverse-ssh-manager) $ deactivate
$ vi  # bump version
$ git add
$ git commit -m "bump version to X.X.X"
$ git tag vX.X.X
$ python sdist bdist_wheel upload
$ git push --tags



To create the image `bbinet/reverse-ssh-manager`, execute the following command::

    docker build -t bbinet/reverse-ssh-manager .

You can now push the new image to the public registry::

    docker push bbinet/reverse-ssh-manager


Then, when starting your rsm container, you will want to bind ports 22 and
80 from the rsm container to a host external port.

You also need to provide a read-only authorized_keys file that will be use to
allow some users to create ssh tunnels using their public ssh key.

Note that psutil won't be able to get pids of running ssh connection unless you
specify option --cap-add SYS_PTRACE with docker run.

If you want to override ssh HostKey file, you can use the HOST_KEY
environment variable to give the path to the ssh host key you can provide
through a docker volume.

For example:

$ docker pull bbinet/reverse-ssh-manager

$ docker run --name rsm \
    -v authorized_keys:/etc/ssh/authorized_keys:ro \
    -v own_ssh_host_rsa_key:/etc/ssh/own_ssh_host_rsa_key:ro \
    -e HOST_KEY="/etc/ssh/own_ssh_host_rsa_key" \
    -p 22:22 \
    --cap-add SYS_PTRACE \
