Bootable linux cd iso image with ssh daemon activated
I've created a bootable linux cd ISO image which has ssh enabled and alows
login as root. I thought this might be also usefull for you, because I was
searching around the net for such a cd and did not find anything which was
working out of the box. The ISO can also be written to a USB stick and used
as bootmedia, but this I have not tested yet.
The ISO is based on the well known SystemRescue CD:
The cd contains many usefull tools for different administrative tasks, see
here for more infos about the included tools, but the programms which need a
grafical environment will not be useable:
If a package is missing it can be installed after booting the cd, the whole
system is based on Arch linux. So it should be possible to also install and
run brltty for example....
You can download the ISO file with ssh deamon enabled here:
After booting the cd your computer will get a dynamic ip address in your
network. You can get this address e.g. by scanning your network or via your
routers webinterface. If you know the address you can connect via ssh with
the following userdata:
I am using the cd to install new linux machines or as a rescue system for my
home server or VServers which I am administrating and which are running at a
If new versions of the SystemRescue CD will be available I'll update the ISO
with the enabled ssh daemon on my server to always have the actual versions
of the tools included on the cd.
If you have questions or ideas regarding the cd just let me know!
Have fun with the ISO, I hope you find the cd also that usefull and
helpfull as I do ;-).
