Mobile ssh client

Do you use any mobile ssh client (JuiceSSH, Termius, etc) for accessing your servers on the go? If yes, which one do you use and why do you prefer it over the others?

  • If you're willing to pay, I can't really go wrong with terminus. Plus the developers are always adding new features. Granted some of those features are stuff that's been in other SSH clients for a long time

    Nope, you are correct. Voice to text fails...

    I've been using JuiceSSH Pro since I got a free license many years ago and with it's Mosh integration, snippets, backups, port forwarding and more it does a great job IMO so I never used alternatives (besides Termux which can do SSH but serves different purposes).

  • Never use it on my mobile, mostly prefer to carry my laptop.

  • ConnectBot. Using for year. Easy interface

  • ConnectBot. Also using for years. Sparingly.
    Still feel masochistic everytime I need to do anything apart from call over the phone.

    I haven't used it on mobile, but I know they have an iOS version, so it should be on Android as well.

  • I use the free version of Juice since it does everything I need and im used to it. I don't really need to SSH via mobile often but it works and has an okay UI.

  • I have Termius Pro from GitHub Education.
    Works fine, just as a SSH client should.

    I still use juicessh. If i have room, I carry a tiny BT keyboard with me if i need to do anything more than a few commands.

  • I use termux to run a few bits & bobs on my Android devices. Mainly rsync for integrating with my general backup arrangement. Comes with SSH built in, you can even run the server there if you need to call the other way.

  • Termius works ok for me

    +1 this. Termux also have scp (sadly dropped soon) which I can drop file from server a to b without open my laptop which sometimes I kinda lazy :D

    I used some software (I can't remember which one right now) ssh client on an Android smartphone, but I found that in most cases it's useless because it's too difficult to enter commands on a smartphone. Especially with a virtual keyboard.

    The SCP protocol is going, but you'll still have the command. Current versions already just use the SFTP instead so if you are up-to-date when the protocol starts to vanish from servers, which won't happen overnight, you'll not notice.

    The only issue will be if servers start dropping support when you are for some reason held back on an older set of client tools (legacy embedded system you don't have access/permission to update, etc.).

    Though I tend to use rsync more than I use sftp or scp anyway, just out of habit.

    Important note that I missed when mentioning termux earlier: install it via f-droid. The version in Play store is no longer updated: https://www.xda-developers.com/termux-terminal-linux-google-play-updates-stopped/

    termux helps out a bit there, as do some other clients, but yes it is not overly pleasant. I find it fine for quick commands like kicking off pre-written scripts and other basics, for anything more involved I'll wait until I can conveniently hook up a bluetooth keyboard (or unless it is something that needs to be done for the phone or nothing else is handy with my keys available, just use another machine).

    By the way, using scripts is a good idea. To help smartphone users, it would be very nice if you could use ready-made macros on such an ssh client. But I haven't seen an ssh client that supports macros.

    I use JuiceSSH a few years ago. The dev abandones the buggy app, then suddenly made an update to fix purchasing, but not the bugs. I left the apps since then and Termux have been my only app now.

  • LittleCreekLittleCreek Member, Patron Provider

    I like Termius because its available on any device I use and automatically has my keys and servers.

    all you need now is a free vps to ssh in?

    i love free vps

    JuiceSSH. It's as good as it'll get on mobile honestly. If blackberry ever makes a come back with physical keyboards it would be a great combo.
