AXsh supports multiple lines, multiple users logged in simultaneously and 8 different user levels. User actions can be saved into a log file. Each user has his/her own home directory, and the used disk space can be/is restricted.
AXsh can be used as a bulletin board system with or without UUCP or as a door program in a 'normal' BBS. It has its own mail, news and file transfer programs. However, AXsh is not restricted to remote access, it can be very well used as a local shell.
The shell itself has command line editing, function key macros, history, aliases, variables and scripts. It also has filename and commandname completion assigned to the TAB key. VT100, Ansi and dumb terminal modes are currently supported.
Many useful programs are included in the packet and any CLI-based programs can easily be added.
AXsh systems can be connected together to form a network, so that mail and news are exchanged between systems. You can also use UUCP instead of the native AXsh net system or you can use another transport mechanism like Fidonet (TrapDoor) to transfer AXsh net packets. News and mail programs are configurable to fully interface with UUCP or CNews.
If you have WB2.1, you can choose the used language from English, Finnish, Spanish, French, Danish, Swedish and German. New 2.0 features are also used, but you can still use AXsh with ks1.3 if you have arp.library.
