xen-shell is a simple console application which allows you to easily allow the owner of a single Xen instance to control it, without the overhead of a web-based control panel.

Using this shell users may:

Boot/Shutodwn their Xen guest.
Reboot their Xen guest.
Connect to the serial console of their runing Xen guest.
Reimage their system to a pristine state, via xen-tools.
Manipulate their reverse DNS information

The shell features command history, command completion, and integrated help.

It is ideal for a hosting company who wishes to over "virtual machine" hosting to their customers, and allow them to control their own instance.

xen-tools (optional)

What's New in This Release:
This release increases portability on non-Debian Xen systems, and adds additional error checks in places that might fail.
