  normally I would use ssh to reach the server I need to manage but
actually I'm working in an environment where internet connection is
filtered from firewalls and proxies: in a such place it is not
possible to use ssh as its connection is closed as soon as I try to
open it. Shellinabox is a terminal emulator that works in a browser
and this looks like the only possibility I have to reach the server I
want to manage.
