Night and day difference from other SSH Server apps I've installed (and uninstalled). Even the shell interface is different, better, does BASH like command history, backspace works, interrupt works, ls outputs in columnar format with color highlighting. I haven't got that far into it yet but if it supports remote execution run and exit keys, well then it's pretty much perfect. I really downloaded this because there essentially isn't any workable SNMP agents or any other monitoring agents that work reliably like Zabbix or JNX that I've found for Android, so this is a means to roll my own, and run and exit scripts that simply output /proc data would do mostly what you need for monitoring. App claims to work on Android TV, or at least doesn't claim not to work and that is another big bonus, but so far it doesn't seem to. App is there but the settings menu is just a dead button. I need to deduct one star for that because even if another SSH server did less it'd win based on that functionality. The Android TVs really need this sort of functionality of some sort, other than local Termux which is better than nothing (and works) but they really need some kind of remote tweaking ability
Great app. I installed it on my Shield TV so that I could manage the file system more easily from a familiar ssh session and updated to the pro version immediately so that I could use SSH keys,. But, I would have upgraded regardless because the app design is great and the app "just works" and then gets out of your way. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I would like to see an actual Android TV interface (setting this up with the game controller was "fun"). If I see any evidence that better Android TV support is coming soon I'll up my rating to 5 stars. But, since the app hasn't been updated in over a year, I'm not optimistic (although that could just be because the app is so awesome there's nothing left to do to it in the dev's opinion).
Woo hoo! Using Dolphin to access the elusive 2nd partition which doesn't appear as a mountable partition with Android 5. It's not mass storage but close enough. I dinged it a star for using a whopping 140+ MB (!) of memory. I don't know if it's video for the ads or what, but that seems excessive for an SSH server. Perhaps it's less of an issue in the paid version. Thankfully there's a menu option to quit, which immediately releases the allocated memory so you don't have to wait around for Android to kill it when you're done using it.
Works great. No muss no fuss. Love that it displays the connect string (firstname.lastname@example.org.....) as a reminder. Best solution so far to copy files to my device (via rsync or sshfs on desktop computer). Cons: 1.) It should really prompt to change the default password on first use. 2.) It should make it easier to add my desktop key, for passwordless login. Maybe prompt at first connection from the desktop? 3.) Something as sensitive as an SSH server should be open source. How do I know this does not phone home?
This app does not properly implement public key authentication, requiring private keys to be stored on the device and offering no means of providing public keys (which are what should be used for authentication) to the app to authenticate remote connections. I would be wary of this developer as they clearly do not understand public key infrastructure and appear to have a shaky understanding of security mechanisms.
It's a good app, but useless without access to my SD card. The addition of rsync was a great progress, which allows me to transfer data between my phone and other devices, but not being able to access the SD makes it pointless. I know it's easy to fix, but I hope the developer adds this feature.
- Fixed the start/stop UI issue
- Preliminary Android 5 support (may not work with root yet)
- rsync is now included in SSHDroid (sperimental build with libiconv support)
- Fixed a problem with importing keys >= 2048 bit
- Fixed a problem with in-app purchase restore
- Google Play Services updated
- Optimized layout for tablets
- Minor UI changes
