SSH options for PalmOS

Filed under: — 1:44 pm

I’ve been setting up my new Palm Tungsten T3 and I noticed there are three different SSH (secure shell) applications for PalmOS:

  • Top Gun SSH is the original SSH for palm, and I relied on it for years with my old Palm. It’s limited to SSH version 1, but it works on ancient devices.
  • TuSSH works on PalmOS 4 or later and supports SSH 1 and 2. I haven’t tried this one yet.
  • pssh is for PalmOS 5 only, and supports SSH 2. This is my current favorite. It remembers server names and ports so I don’t have to re-enter them every time, and it looks great on a hi-res screen.

Last week my wife and I were camping at Lake Mead and I was able to restart an overloaded Web server from my Palm while sitting around the campfire. That has to be some kind of techno-Nirvana.
