connectbot—Secure shell (SSH) client for the Android platform

2011年4月28日 | 分类: 手机翻墙 | 标签: ,

ConnectBot is a Secure Shell client for the Android platform. Its ultimate goal is to create a secure connection through which you can use a shell on a remote machine and transfer files back and forth to your phone.

Development Team

Two core developers are working on the client, Kenny Root and Jeffrey Sharkey.

We’re both idling in #connectbot on freenode if you have questions. If you’re a developer, check out details about how the current codebase is Designed.

There are also mailing lists: ConnectBot-users for user support and ConnectBot-commits for development updates.

Available in Android Market

The latest stable version of ConnectBot is available in the Android Market. You can scan the code below using the Barcode Scanner application to go directly to its entry in Market:

If you want to run the development versions, you can follow these quick steps to getting ConnectBot working on your new G1 Android phone:

1. Enable outside-of-Market applications. Go into Settings, Applications, and enable the “Unknown sources” option.

2. Uninstall any old versions. Go into Settings, Applications, Manage Applications. Look through the list for ConnectBot and uninstall if it’s there. or From from your desktop console, type ./adb -d uninstall org.connectbot

3. Install the new version. Open your G1 browser to this page and download one of the APKs shown on the right. Tap on the download when it’s done and follow the instructions to install the app. or From your desktop console, download an APK and type ./adb -d install [filename].apk

If you run into application problems

Please, please send us relevant logcat dumps when you have a crash. Here’s how to get a logcat dump:

1. Enable USB debugging. Go into Settings, Applications, Development, and enable the “USB debugging” option.

2. Install the Android SDK. You’ll need a desktop tool called adb that will help you get error logs.

3. Make sure your phone can connect. Follow the instructions here to make sure that adb can talk with your device:

3. Dump logcat data. From your desktop console, type ./adb -d logcat | grep -i connectbot. Make sure it’s showing some data, then copy everything into a text file and attach to your bugreport here on this site. CAREFULLY read over the logs for any sensitive information BEFORE posting. You might need to Ctrl+C to quit adb once it stops printing data.
