Thread: What the heck is SSH???

    Default What the heck is SSH???
    I keep seeing references to ssh, and it is recommended that I have this installed on my 1.0.2 phone before I upgrade to 1.1.1. But for the life of me, after looking through downloads (found the new ssh) and other links, I cannot figure out what this is or what it does. I feel like an idiot.

    Secure Socket Shell. It's simply more secure way of telneting to your iPhone to make changes on the Command Line level. You can also use it as a protocol with SFTP to access your iPhone using an FTP Client. Like Cyberduck, Transmit (for Mac) or whatever PC equivalent (I don't use em).

    My knowledge to SSH is very limited but I guess, it will make your iphone (or any device on which you install it) as a server.

    It will help you to talk to other servers/computers remotely. BUT turn if OFF when you are not using it, otherwise you will be carrying a server in your pocket.

    I didn't mean to put this in the wrong forum, but I don't know which one I should have posted in.
