Web Based SSH Client?

Well, I'll say what I've got, what I'm looking for, and if it exists it would be a great help for you guys (and gals) out there to point me to a website.

I've got an older machine (Pentium I) running a firewall with routing, ssh, ftp, and nothing else. On the inside I've got myself a windowze xp machine, and a linux webserver/e-mail machine along with my PS2 and maybe some more computers later.

What I want is a way that I can log into my webserver via a web based ssh session in order to access my firewall if it needs any changes. I'd like it to be web based because I end up at a lot of other people's computers who don't want me to install anything on their computers, and telnet is both a pain and unsecure.

So, if there is a web app out there please drop me a website to go check it out, as well as a little info as to which extensions it might require in apache (PHP is all I have loaded right now.)

May I suggest PuTTy? Google for "putty ssh" and you'll be taken straight to the page. It's a small download (348KB for the current version), which even modem users should feel OK with, and it doesn't need any installation. Just double-click and run.

I just did a quick search of my software directory and I came up with something that might suit your needs: SSHTerm
