SSHDroid

SSHDroid


SSHDroid is a SSH server implementation for Android.
This application will let you connect to your device from a PC and execute commands (like "terminal" and "adb shell") or edit files (through SFTP, WinSCP, Cyberduck, etc...).

If you like this application, you can consider supporting it by upgrading to the pro version with more feature like:
- Extended notification controls
- Homescreen and lockscreen widget
- Shared-key authentication
- WiFi autostart whitelist
- Automation with intents support
- AdFree

FAQs:
q: How can I access to my device once the application is running?
a:
Windows users:
- File Transfer: WinSCP (http://winscp.net).
- Remote Shell: PuTTY (http://goo.gl/XbTF)

Linux users:
- File Transfer: natively supported by most file managers (like Nautilus or Dolphin), just enter the sftp address displayed as "Location".
- Remote Shell: run 'ssh' from the terminal.

Mac users:
- File Transfer: Cyberduck (http://cyberduck.ch).
- Remote Shell: run 'ssh' from the terminal

q: How can I upgrade to the pro version?
a: If you previously purchased SSHDroidPro on Google Play, the new version will automatically detect it and upgrade to pro otherwise you can unlock it as in-app purchase.

q: Why my transfer speed decrease when I turn off the screen?
a: Enable the option 'Lock Wifi'. If your device is running at least Android 2.3.x, you should get full speed transfer even when the screen is off, otherwise enable the option 'Lock screen' too.

q: How can I use a shared key with Putty/Winscp?
a: You have to generate a key from the application in OpenSSH format and use Puttygen to import/convert it in ppk format. A recent version of Puttygen (>= 0.61) is required!

q: Is root required to run this application?
a: root is optional but not required.

q: How can I automate the application start/stop?
a:
Use the following broadcast intents:
start: berserker.android.apps.sshdroid.command.START
stop: berserker.android.apps.sshdroid.command.STOP

Awesome app! Use SSH quite often! Use it also with Servers Ultimate which also contains SSH and over 40 different servers.

I like this, but it's quite unstable. It cannot listen to the port often. I have to clear data to let it initialize to have it work again.

Cannot connect from linux. SSH client hangs. Device : Galaxy S2

Wonderful to have, especially when adb gave me troubles on one device. Add a .profile file to home with two following lines, symlinks already there for all busybox commands, just not in your path: ---LINE ONE---> PATH=$PATH:~/bin <--LINE ONE-- ---LINE TWO---> export PATH <--LINE TWO-- For newbies, that will run on login and make commands work. Try ls ~/bin to see list. Dev forgot to add to path

Best SSH app I used to use it all the time with my Nexus 4, way better than using a cable, just load up WinScp and this and away you go. It's shame that my new phone has an good FTP feature built into the file manager, now I don't have any reason to install this gem. Maybe next time.
