Ssh on the Samsung Chromebook

Last time we talked about my first thoughts on the Chromebook, and how I would love some ssh on it. So it turns out it has it and it’s extremely easy to access – just hit Control-Alt-T and you’re in the Chrome Shell (crosh). From there, you can just run

ssh user host [port]

and you’re good to go! Unlike the CR-48 you don’t even have to turn on developer mode, so get hacking away! I couldn’t find a whole lot of info on the Chrome Shell – for now, try running help for a list of the commands and their usage.
