I got an email from a friend of mine a few weeks ago asking me to help him hack his remote computer on a Windows laptop.
I’d never hacked my own computer before, but this guy seemed to have a lot of good ideas for how to do so.
Here are a few of the things he suggested: Find a program that can run on your Mac’s command line.
(I’d recommend finding a program like MacPorts that allows you to connect to remote servers.)
Install a program called “Terminal.”
That’s not a bad name for a program, and it’s a good one.
I found it on the Mac App Store.
(The Mac App store is now down, and you can’t find it on Google Play.)
Download the latest version of the Terminal app.
That way, if you use the Terminal on a computer that doesn’t have Terminal installed, Terminal will automatically install it for you.
Open a new terminal window.
It’s easy to do this, and I suggest you do it if you haven’t already.
(You might be able to do it on your phone, too.)
Type the following command in the Terminal window: cd ~/Library/LaunchDaemons/ sudo nano ~/LibraryLaunchDaemsterminal.sh sudo ./terminal -d -f ~/Library/.config/Terminal.log cd ~/Desktop sudo nano ~/.config/terminalrc sudo nano .config/init.d/termina.sh Terminal will then launch the Terminal application.
You should see a message like this: terminal.log -f ~/.config/.terminald/ Terminal will create a file called “termina” inside of ~/.config and add this line: sudo -u root -e ~/.config /usr/local/bin/terminale -f /usr /Library/.
Config/Termina -p /usr:/Library/Application Support/Terminail/Terminated/Terminale.log You’ll probably see a bunch of errors here, so make sure you’ve set the correct permissions.
Now, type the following: cd ~/.config sudo nano /etc/terminate.log sudo ./configure –prefix=/usr –enable-local-exec sudo make sudo make install Note that the prefix is important.
If you use /usr, you’ll get a warning that the /usr directory isn’t found.
Now type the next command in your Terminal window, to save the Terminal configuration file.
sudo nano ./config/options.sh And then type the commands below to save and install the Terminal program: sudo make make install sudo sudo chmod +x ~/.config Now your Terminal session will look something like this when you’re done: You’ll notice that the terminal.d is now a separate executable.
Now let’s change the default configuration file that you’ll see when you start your computer to point to ~/.config.termina: sudo nano ~/.config/.configfile sudo vi ~/.config .configfile Replace the .config file name with your name for the configuration file you just created.
For instance, I would change it to something like ~/Desktop/.config: ~/.DesktopTerminalTerminatedTerminaleTermina.log To make sure that the file is installed, type this in your terminal window: sudo vim ~/.configfile To save and exit your terminal session, type sudo exit .
You’ll then be greeted with this screen: Your terminal session is now running as a separate process from the terminal that you installed earlier.
It may be a little slow, but it should be usable for a short while.
Once you’re logged into the computer, you can log in with your Mac account.
If your computer isn’t automatically logged into, you may need to change your password.
(If you’ve forgotten your password, you might be prompted to log in using a Mac password.
This isn’t a problem for me, but if you don’t, you should change it now.)
Now you can access your Mac with the default password, or you can use your Mac as a remote server.
If the computer is connected to the Internet, you could also use a proxy to redirect requests from the Internet to your Mac, like you would with a browser.
But for now, you’re all set to run the Terminal programs on your own computers.
