The web interface has a web shell that makes it convenient to run command line tools from the web browser as the root user.
The prompt shows that the current user is root@truenas, the host name is truenas, and the current working directory is ~, where root is the user, truenas is the home directory of the logged-in user, and the sysmbol between the square brackets is the working directory.
The Shell screen includes three UI elements:
|Set font size slider||Adjusts the size of text displayed in the shell main area.|
|RESTORE DEFAULT||Resets the shell font and size.|
|?||Displays the shell tooltip with helpful information about the screen. For example, CTRL+C kills a foreground process. It also lists built-in utilities such as: Iperf, Netperf, IOzone, arcsat, tw_cli, MegaCli, freenas-debug, tmux, and Dmidecode.|
Shell command history is available for the current session.
The default shell for a new installations is zsh. See Changing the Default Shell for instructions on changing to a different shell.
