Pure-Rust asynchronous SSH library, both client and server

#16 cannot close a channel using a thrussh::server::Handle

I’ve used thrussh::server to implement a basic server that responds to PTY requests. I’m able to send data to clients from outside the handler by calling Handle::data, but it doesn’t seem like I can cleanly terminate the session without the ability to close the channel.

I’m wondering if this is something that was overlooked, since Handle implements other methods like eof and exit_status_request.

I’ve tried calling both of these, but the OpenSSH client will only end the session once the server has closed the channel. Currently I’m doing this on the first piece of data that gets received, but it would be nicer if I could just send a request via a Handle method.

Hi! Thanks for this request. Indeed, while this was implemented for the Session type, it wasn’t for handlers. I’ve just pushed a patch to fix that.

Feel free to ask any other question!
