Not a good solution amongst any of that it seems... Adding OpenSSH
would increase the image size dramatically. Even a small ssh server
like dropbear adds around a couple meg.
/usr/ports/security/dropbear might be helpful. From pkg-descr:
Dropbear is an SSH 2 server, designed to be usable in small memory environments.
* Main features of SSH 2 protocol
* Implements X11 forwarding, and authentication-agent forwarding
for OpenSSH clients
* Compatible with OpenSSH ~/.ssh/authorized_keys public key
Someone has already integrated this into m0n0wall.
I'm not a programmer, but hopefully that might help you a little.
