SSH persistent tunnels


** Beta testers needed! ** to be a beta tester, please join the "SPT beta test" google+ community

SSH Persistent Tunnel (SPT) tries to maintain ssh tunnels over the frequent change of network and disconnects typical for a mobile device. SPT tries to reconnect each time a new network comes up.
SPT is ideal for creating a simple VPN, with no need for rooted device.

So, why not just use connectbot?
SPT is better than connectbot at recovering from network disconnects, and is less resource consuming since it does not do any terminal emulation.

Features
* supports authentication with passwords or private key.
* supports dynamic, local and remote tunnels
* maintains a known-hosts database for prevention of MITM attacks.
* strives to be as lightweight as possible to conserve system resources.
* never stores your password! login password or private key passphrase are stored in memory only.
* preferences can be exported/imported to/from sdcard
* Supports scripting via intent actions
* Open Source - Don't trust me -- check SPT's security for yourself ...

Recent changes:
* Fixed 2 bugs which made SPT break on Android 4+

I apologize for the much too frequent updates since version 2. Hopefully everything will quite down soon ...

Thank you for the positive feedbacks!

Great app! Only lacks multiple profiles but I made a workaround by forwarding its connection to different IPs and ports by aiming this at 127.0.0.1 and using a port forwarder with profiles.

Socks problem While i can make a tunnel to my server, my tunnel is unusable. i can't forward any traffic through it. i used the computer's putty to make ssh tunnel and use it for OPENVPN but it doesn't work with this app.
