Salve! What would admins to love to have on their smartphones?
I have used the J2ME SSH (1) client flydssh for a while, together with screen quite nice - but some things did I missed. So some ideas to use a secure connection to the servers more efficent. This should be just a start hear your ideas as well ;) bell - would be nice to have vibra/beeb as bell from a screen terminal - selectable for each terminal. E.g. get an alarm when a new email is in your folder, or someone continous the chat. Caching Screen was written in a time where it was more likly that the time of your connections count and not each single Byte. Looking on the high GPRS traiffs When you have only one SSH client on your mobile and use screen on your server, everytime you switch with screen your terminal you will retransmitt this terminal to your mobil = unefficient and expensive. When you use screen on your mobile you need to have multiple SSH connections to your server - everytime you open a new terminal you need a new login - key based login would help, but would not be so secure - ideas? When you scroll back it will be retransmitted? Wouldn't it be fine to have local proxy shell that remembers what to scroll back and which history is on the server? Editing files are not so smart doing this over a slow network - it would be nice to have files, that you often modify, on your Neo1973 as well - e.g. Webpages, extensions.conf(asterisk). On your server and on your mobil would be a cvs system so when you would work on your server and would use [EMAIL PROTECTED] /etc/asterisk/ the proxy shell would show you that /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf is in the proxy of your smartphone and it could inform you how much lines of the versions a different. When you work inside your proxy shell you could work with some programs localy, e.g. vim (or any other editor - maybe vim will be not the best choise on a touchscreen device *g*): [EMAIL PROTECTED] /etc/asterisk/extentions.conf and when you save it, the proxy shell would ask you [ ] replicate with the server immediately [ ] replicate with the next cheap internet connection - or in  hours or when the file on the server is read next time and you are online. When having a CVS it could blow up, so it could be integrated in a way that you could load every stepp back from the server, but save on the mobile only the stepp backs until the last replication (plus 10 more stepps back...) So when you have worked hard (a lot of changes) on the server without the Neo1973 you will get only the diff or just the stepp backs that you want. Sleeping terminal when having multiple proxy shells open in the screen style on your OpenMoko, it would be nice to have a sleep modus where they get updates from the server only on demand. Starting the sleeping modus could be on demand and automaticaly when the device lost a cheap internet connection. E.g. the asterisk shell it doesn't hurt to have it running with a free internetconnection for the Neo (beside battery...) snooze mode to save battery power it could be nice to have 5 minutes snooze mode do a short update and then snooze again sleep mode this could sleep for longer, even with disconnections but waking up with an incomming call with a special number or directly with a data-call in case that something urgent happend - firefall brake in alarm - server got a long expected email - someone goes on with chatting The alarms of the admin tools should be respect general telephone "user mode" policy. I'm shure we will have a general system when, who will can call you, when the sound is of, (or just the vibra for the first minutes) in dependancy of - personal selection - time - locacion - maybe light - last use of the phone - ... others Of couse the OpenMoko/Neo1973 device could have some extended security for the server logins - e.g. an own vserer-guest, encrypted filesystem to store your proxy-shell files, login with keys, external crypto token, self deleting when - a non authorised SIM is inserted - admin didn't log in for  days - server says to do so (when your Neo1973 is lost/stolen) and others ... :) Of course things like a proxy shell mustn't be started at the beginning, but I'm shure several software solution would reduce online cost and would make admin tasks with OpenMoko/Neo1973 more efficient. :) Some more ideas what admins would like to have? What you would like to have? ;))) Greetings, rob _______________________________________________ OpenMoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
