What a difference an update makes... For awhile, ConnectBot had fallen behind.. No updates, dubious behavior with Bluetooth keyboards and some unusual ui quirks.. Well, I can't say it's now quirk free, but I can say that in terms of core features provided, it's definitely catching up to JuiceSSH. One particularly nifty feature present in ConnectBot that's a pay feature in JuiceSSH is port forwarding.. Very helpful when wanting to quickly check things behind a firewall... Now if only Android browsers made it easier to set custom proxies...
Long time user Just had to refresh my rating, this app is amazing, it's rock solid, and does everything you want with SSH, even tunneling.The keyboard has improved over the years, and is ultimate! Now that the arrow and ctrl keys remain present for multi presses, for touch only keyboards, it makes navigating around the screen simply and easy. Well done for the years of free access to simply the best SSH app on Play!
Sweet & Simple! I love this app. It is open source, absolutely free and functional! It's sweet and simple and quite frankly all that I need. Other ssh apps are nice and all but I don't need all that extra functionality for simply ssh-ing into and managing my DigitalOcean droplets. Plus if I need more functionality I can simply modify the source code adding what I need and simply send it upstream for others to enjoy as well. 5 Stars for such an exceptional open source app that I use almost daily!
I for the life of me cannot get this app to communicate with any server other than a "local' connection. I connect to the servers just fine. The keyboard comes up, and nothing. I can't believe I am the only person that has this problem, but nothing comes up in google searches.
Cannot live without it anymore That's it! It works as a Shell Terminal (works beautifully with root), Telnet and SSH client. The only thing it lacks is a way of choosing the default Shell (mksh, bash, etc).
As a Linux user at home and work, this is very useful! I use this with port forwarding and tight ufw rules to securely access my laptop. Setting up key-based login is a little fussy but once done it is smooth as glass.
