It seems not working on my phone Hauwei G520 I tried to ssh from my ubuntu to the phone, it just hanged it there, and phone did not show any anything on its log. I also tried nmap to scan the port 2222 (which I configured for the server), nmap showed the host is down. Maybe I need to turn the andorid firewall for the port 2222, but the app description never say so. I am going uninstall this one and try others.
OK, but UI needs a rethink Seems quite featureful but UI is unfriendly and needs serious polishing. Won't run on port 22 but doesn't bother to explain why. If Port Forwarder Ultimate is required, why not say so IN THE APP (not just on Google Play) and link to it on Google Play?? Also seems to expect settings to be saved by hitting back rather than a "Save" or "OK", unlike every other application out there. Starting/stopping unnecessarily asks for confirmation even when you only have one server defined. And the notification icon persists even when no servers are running.
Pretty good sshd implementation It works. There are a couple of problems. If you turn on the sshd server without creating any users, or if you delete the users, it will allow an ssh connection with no authentication. Not bad if you want that for your personal, secured wi-fi network, but pretty risky on a public wi-fi or if exposed to the internet. Also, interactive shell sessions don't disconnect when you exit the shell. You have to close the window in putty or use the "~." escape sequence if using openssh in a terminal emulator or console session. This is not a fatal flaw , but it is annoying.
Has a few problems ... For light users who don't fear clear text password storage it seems a reasonable app. A couple issues caused me to uninstall it. First, when using a standard SSH client, for instance a standard Linux terminal, the SSH Server fails to close the session after an 'exit' or 'logout' so the terminal just hangs. You have to kill the SSH session window or terminate the SSH Server. The good folks at the company responded admitting they knew the issue existed (given their choice of implementation) but don't know a fix for the issue. Second, passwords entered for the SSH users are stored in clear text in the settings files of the app. Easy pickings for a rooted phone. That's not secure enough for me, so had to give up on this app. In my case I ended up fixing an open source app to work properly instead.
Can't get it to work, can't see port. I couldn't get this to work, doesn't use port 22 and once I left the server creation screen I couldn't find what the port number was anywhere. Using SSHDroid instead, it worked with no problems at first try on port 22.
Useful File transfer utility I had some intermittent stability problems involving the app crashing and the router going slow. To transfer around 5 gigs / 25,000 files to back up my laptop's /home folders, I had to restart my phone a few times to get to the SFTP server working again. Stop server / Start server sometimes helped, but sometimes I needed to restart the phone and other times I had to restart the router. I don't usually restart the router often. The laptop was running FileZilla over wifi under Debian Squeeze
- for users added public key authentication (RSA or DSA/DSS)
- for users allow agent/X11 forwarding or inbound/outbound connections
- set timeouts for idle andauthorization and/or set max authorization attempts and max concurrent sessions per user
- and we fixed some bugs
