Great App!

This app is definitely worth the low price. Easy setup if you're familiar with Linux. Enable a static local IP, and port forwarding on your router for a convenient way to monitor/restart the system when you're away from home. The only thing I'd like to see is a text editor for modifying config files and crontab.

Tip: Set up a script to automatically email you if your IP address changes.

Great idea

This app is worth the money just to have a restart/shutdown option. Easy to setup and had no issues. I'd love to see an ssh option but I am happy with my purchase!! Thanks for the great work.

I just noticed the author also sells an ssh app so I am tickled pink! So worth the ~$5.99 for both.
