'rrs' is a reverse (connecting) remote shell. Instead of listening, it connects out to rrs in listen mode. The listener accepts the connection and receives a shell from the remote host. rrs features full pseudo-TTY support, full OpenSSL support, Twofish encryption, a simple XOR cipher, plain-text sessions, peer-side session snooping, a daemon option, and reconnection features.
