SSH via Your #iPad
|An UbuntuLinux Server running Moodle...I'm accessing it via iSSH on my iPad 3rd gen|
OpenSSH (OpenBSD Secure Shell) is a set of computer programs providing encrypted communication sessions over a computer network using the SSH protocol. It was created as an open source alternative to the proprietary Secure Shell software suite offered by SSH Communications Security. (Source: Wikipedia)After some quick googling, I stumbled across ZingerSoft's ISSH iPad app, which offered the opportunity to do just that. Some of the features:
- Launch new connections or close existing ones from within the terminal
- Optional split screen in portrait mode
- Has the option to adjust the terminal size by fit or a standard number of columns
- Assign any active connection to any split screen window
- X Server/VNC mousepad widget has a user-adjustable location
- X Server/VNC view has a "chromeless" option
Apparently, ISSH is pretty popular:
A full-featured SSH and Telnet emulator of VT100, VT102, VT220, ANSI, and xterm terminals integrated with a tunneled VNC client, RDP client and an X server.
Great stuff...controlling an UbuntuLinux server from an iPad. It's blasphemy!
