This is for advanced users only!! Anything you do while SSH’d into StartOS is NOT SUPPORTED, unless under the guidance of a Start9 technician.
When interacting with StartOS directly, you will invariably want to use
start-cli. start-cli can control StartOS in many of the same ways that the UI can, but with finer controls and deeper insights.
In order to use start-cli, you will first need to authorize yourself with the following command…
start-cli auth login
and enter your StartOS Master Password at the prompt.
You can enter
start-cli help or
start-cli <option> help to get an overview of capabilities:
