About this app

SimpleSSHD is a free (open source, no ads) SSH server based on dropbear that supports scp, sftp, and rsync. It only supports public-key based authentication (no password/interactive auth). It does not use root, which means it must listen on a port over 1024 (defaults to port 2222).

This works great to sync data between my Pocket 3 XL and my Apple macOS, Linux, and Windows platforms. I didn't really want to buy a third-party native app to download my phone camera to my Mac. It supports ssh shell (sh). I primarily use this for rsync. Public key was easy to set up so I don't need to type the generated password. It's nice to have the simple fallback when connecting from a new or secondary device. Thank you to the developer for making this available!

Probably the most usable SSH service on Android. The one time password thing isn't actually a problem because you only need to use it to upload your SSH, right? ๐Ÿ˜› However, it would be nice to be able to select which interface (mobile vs wifi) to listen on. (But at least i don't have to turn mobile data off in order to use the wifi interface. Yes SSHelper, I'm looking at you)

Very useful app and I use it daily to sync and back up my phones storage. However I do get segmentation faults with a recommendation to report to the dev, with no option to capture the log and report it. Perhaps this can be added in a later version? Other than that, solid app and works very well.

What's new

New approach to accessing /sdcard. Automatically re-start on package upgrade if Start on Boot enabled. Fix "Non-matching signing type" error with older ssh clients.

If you have problems with external storage, try "Enable /sdcard" menu option.
