VNC provides a way for a regular user to start a server on a host, then use the corresponding client to connect to the VNC server from another host. I'm looking for a server/client pair that works in a similar way, but only provides simple terminal access rather than access to an X display. This would be similar to telnet or ssh, but the daemon is started by a normal user. Do you know of anything like this? I could write my own, but maybe there's something good out there already.
See this ServerFault question to run OpenSSH daemon as a regular user. This will allow a regular user to start their own SSH daemon on their own port with their own configuration file.
