The fact that OpenSSH has its name from Unix does not make the concept
of a remote terminal useless to a system like eCos. Command line
interfaces (CLIs) are very useful with embedded systems, too. It
would be just great to have a SSH protocol implementation available
that could be used for secure remote access to such CLIs.
The fact that eCos does not come with a CLI framework is also not what
I´d call a strength. We are using a home-grown CLI written in
port. There is a port of tcl which can be used to implement custom
CLIs. Both of them would benefit from a SSH server framework in order
to allow for remote access. We are not suffering enough to port
OpenSSH to eCos, though.
