Using D-I as an ssh client

One of the udebs available for DebianInstaller is openssh-client-udeb which provides functionality for doing ssh-actions to another host. So you can use d-i as an ssh terminal, for example in a class room.

The great trick is doing

anna-install openssh-client-udeb

in VT2 when d-i knows where to fetch the packages that are not in the initrd.

The make it more userfriendly, you can preseed it:

d-i anna/choose_modules multiselect openssh-client-udeb: Secure shell client for the Debian installer

(on a single line in your preseed file )

Users can do

ssh username@host

to connect to the ssh host.
