Remote shell that works via HTTP
'Wsh' is a remote shell that works via HTTP. The client script provides a shell-like prompt, encapsulating user commands into HTTP POST requests and sending them to the server script. The server script extracts and executes commands and returns STDOUT and STDERR output. Features include command line history support, file upload/download, data flow Xor encoding, the ability to protect server part script usage with a secret key inside an HTTP message, and the ability to work through an HTTP proxy server (to hide a client's ip or bypass a firewall).
