Excellent! Works very well. Unlike another SSH client, this actually uses a fixed width font. Moreover, it can generate and use key pairs that allow disabling password authentication. Superb program.
Great This app has made it extremely easy to make wake on lan and sleep on lan work in my situation. The best feature is the auto run after login commands, you can make simple scripts so you don't have to do any typing (for me it's to send a wakeup packet or run a couple powershell commands to sleep my computer). It's a little finicky with puttygen private keys, but that's easily solved by generating the keys in the app.
Shared key exchange (still) busted in version 1.8.4 Seems that the key exchange problem has somewhat morphed in version 1.8.4. Now, periodically, the following message appears: "Hostkey signature sent by remote is wrong!" Usually, another attempt resolves the issue. Itseems less chronic than the prior signed/unsigned shared secret encoding, but is still occurring nonetheless. (prior review follows)... For those suffering with the message "Key exchange was not finished, connection is closed." when attempting to connect to a server -- try repeatedly connecting. It appears that there is a bug in 1.8.3 that causes this when the shared secret is encoded as a negative value. Subsequent connections will eventually work (provided that rules on your server do not blacklist you first). It appears that the bug has been fixed by the developers but has yet to be released. A small blemish on an otherwise great app.
Always shut the connection Just install it and it's feel like at the desktop but tried with first command, sudo apt-get update, the application always shut the connection. Maybe I'll try back later.
Can't import keys The interface only allows key imports from the SD card. Since I can't write to my SD card because I'm running KitKat, that makes this app completely useless to me.
No more port forwarding Port forwarding is utterly broken in the latest version. Whenever you use that to forward a http port and switch to any other browser, Connect boyt simply drops the connection in the background. Going back to Connect Bot simply gives a dead ssh session. Tried different servers to no avail... shame, used to be a great app.
• Key exchange and host key algorithm preference order was not being respected.
• ECDH would sometimes fail.
• DSA host key support was broken from the beginning of the v1.8 series.
• Connections would sometimes close when leaving ConnectBot.
• Telnet port range too high will no longer cause crashes.
• More context is given for failures to connect via SSH.
• SSH key exchange algorithm will now be printed upon connection.
• All addresses for a particular host will be tried.
