Fine for SSH, but not tunneling Worked well to generate keys and open a password-free SSH connection, but wouldn't open a tunnel.

The only Android SSH client that works with ncurses This fork of connectbot works well, and as far as I can tell is the only Android SSH client that emulates an xterm well enough that ncurses applications work in it. This plus scp capability is a winning combination. It shows great promise. The only downside: I can't quite figure out what governs when it will and won't let me upload and download files. Adding a feature to automatically upload and install public keys would make it just about perfect.
