Network Tools needed (Remote Amiga Login)

Post by terriblefire » Sat Dec 07, 2019 9:17 am

Ok so in what follows I am aware of the security implications. Don't need to tell me about them. Thats generally been my day job for the last 10 years.

I want to accomplish the following.

I would like to to be able to sit at a PC and pull code from Git and build it on my Amiga.

I would like to be able to telnet to my Amiga and get a CLI.

My Amiga is running an 060 and has an ethernet card thats running Roadshow.

Essentially i want to run a telnetd and bind it to my ethernet card.. and use git if possible.

Looks like there is a git implementation for Amiga

https://github.com/sba1/simplegit

EDIT: ah apparently OS4.. so not really for Amiga.

One suggestion (since I think you'll never get a practical implementation of git on AmigaOS classic - crypto and filesystem limitations) would be to use CVS on the Amiga side and a git-cvs server on a linux machine.

Other workarounds would be to nfs or samba mount the code from a linux machine, and commit on linux.

As for telnetd, a bit of googling shows telnetd server for MiamiDX - I have no idea about roadshow.

Sounds like a pretty out there plan you have going :)

I just want to write code on visual studio code and deploy and run it on a real amiga via a script.

Build, Deploy, Test.... really simple with anything except an Amiga.

WinUAE doesnt cut it when hardware dev is involved too.

So cross-compiling locally and then just sending the binary over the network isn't what you're after?

how do i run the code and see the output without a cli? No i need the remote CLI.

Well i dont understand why its so hard. I just wanna start newshell on a telnetd and git pull my code. Its exceptionally basic computing.

CLI part should be easy enough with telnetd from aminet as a "server" in roadshow - I downloaded the demo version and the config seems straightforward - assuming the same for ftpd.

From there it's just a matter of git post-commit hooks to trigger an expect script that "logs in" to the amiga to do whatever you can imagine.

OK this is the bit i dont get with roadshow. It doesnt create a AmiTCP: assign so i have no idea where to add the inetd lines and i cant find any mention of it easily in the docs.

Aaargh I see what you mean! I gave up with (the demo version of) roadshow. I got this far:

In DEVS:Internet/servers:
telnet stream DH0:serv/telnetd

In DEVS:Internet/users:
NAME=root UID=0 GID=0 PASSWORD=root DIR="S:" SHELL="*newshell * from s:remote-startup"

Took me a while to work out things aren't configured in AmiTCP:db/passwd after all, and that the password in "users" is in plain text.

But it just hangs after successful login (SHIFT+ALT+F8 brings up the network log).

Maybe it works in the registered version? Failing that back to amitcp...

EDIT: this is with telnetd2.0

Actually just tried ttyhandler and it works with the roadshow demo.

Same DEVS:internet/users file.

In DEVS:internet/users:
NAME=root UID=1 GID=1 PASSWORD=root

In DEVS:internet/servers:
telnet stream AmiTCP:serv/ttyhandler

Code: Select all

Login: root
Password:
          TTY0
              New Shell process 7
