To get an overview of butterfly features.
Run it as a server
$ butterfly.server.py --host=myhost --port=57575
Or with login prompt
$ butterfly.server.py --host=myhost --port=57575 --login
Or with PAM authentication (ROOT required)
# butterfly.server.py --host=myhost --port=57575 --login --pam_profile=sshd
You can change
sshd to your preferred PAM profile.
The first time it will ask you to generate the certificates (see: here)
Run it with systemd (linux)
Systemd provides a way to automatically activate daemons when needed (socket activation):
$ cd /etc/systemd/system $ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/paradoxxxzero/butterfly/master/butterfly.service $ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/paradoxxxzero/butterfly/master/butterfly.socket $ systemctl enable butterfly.socket $ systemctl start butterfly.socket
Don't forget to update the /etc/butterfly/butterfly.conf file with your server options (host, port, shell, ...) and to install butterfly with the [systemd] flag.
and make the world better (or just butterfly).
Don't hesitate to fork the repository and start hacking on it, I am very open to pull requests.
