Curious.  Are you aware of "settle -d"?  That option enables the "dumb
terminal" mode, which may be friendlier to external scripting.

No, it does not.

Which web host is that?

It takes like 5 minutes to install Owl into a VM (and then you have that
image that you can reuse), so it is unclear to me what you're looking for.

For network settings, you may pick:

These work with QEMU and I think with VirtualBox too (you'll need to
enable NAT in the VM settings).

Note that currently Owl itself does not have web hosting stuff in it, so
your web host is probably using some added packages on top of Owl -
you'll need to copy those to the VM or something.

Sounds cool.
