Looking Glass

Easy to deploy Looking Glass made in PHP.

Requirements

  • Webserver such as Apache 2, or Lighttpd, etc…
  • PHP (>= 7.0) module for the webserver (libapache2-mod-php for Apache 2 for example)
  • The XML package is required as well (php7.0-xml on Debian for example)

Description

This web application made in PHP is what we call a Looking Glass. This is a tool used to get some information about networks by giving the opportunity to execute some commands on routers. The output is sent back to the user.
For now this looking glass is quite simple. Here you have some features:
  • Interface using Javascript and AJAX calls (needs a decent browser)
  • Support the following router types:
    • Juniper
    • BIRD
    • Cisco (IOS and IOS-XR)
    • Extreme/Brocade NetIron
    • Mikrotik/RouterOS
    • OpenBGPd
    • Quagga
    • Vyatta/VyOS/EdgeOS
    • FRRouting
  • Support of Telnet and SSH connection to routers using password authentication and SSH keys
  • Configurable list of routers
  • Tweakable interface (title, logo, footer, elements order)
  • Log all commands in a file
  • Customizable output with regular expressions
  • Configurable list of allowed commands
And here is a list of what this looking glass should be able to do in the future:
  • Support more routers
  • Support of other types of authentication
