Never heard of shellinabox. Why do you need that, rather than, say,
xterm or rxvt or konsole?


We use it to allow users access to the HPC from Windows machines.  The
alternative, cygwin,
takes quite a bit of installation and configuration so shellinabox is a
alternative.  We're still on CentOS 5, so not a lot of use to the OP
