How to setup up SSH?

Postby tango57 » Fri Apr 15, 2011 3:09 pm

Hi, I just purchase the in app SSH feature. Sorry I'm very new at this but is there a simple guide to follow on how setup SSH to work with VNC. I'm not sure how to set this up within the app on my iPhone. Is there something I have to setup on my computer first like some service to enable or some software to install within Windows first? Currently I'm using the TightVNC service to connect to my PC and using just the VNC option which works fine. Do I have to forward ports on my wireless router for SSH and if so which ports? I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions. :D

Hi, tango57,

you will need to install an SSH server for Windows. Users have had luck with freeSSHd (http://www.freesshd.com/)

SSH uses port 22, so you will need to port-forward port 22 to your computer.

For VNC I recommend UltraVNC 1.0.8.2.

Let me know if you need more help!,

Hy guy.
First of all, GREAT APP, I like it so so so much.So great that I bought SSH add on.....
installed freesshd, tightvnc, but when I set freesshd Password authentication and Public key authentication on REQUIED, don't work with message error : ".....The ssh sever didn't accept the supplied credentials"
But they're ok.If i set between authentication on ALLOWED(on freesshd),it work.I think the private key don't work fine....I created it with puttygen, private and public key, put the private key with itunes on dir remoter vnc in the ipad, and put the public key in a dir on the server ....and set the dir in the option of freesshd.
I'm a little newb, but I spent too much time for set this....plz somebody can help me ?????

tnx

Hi crazybrain,

The upcoming release (*very soon!*) includes much more comprehensive support for SSH public-key based authentication; including a manager view that allows you to create the keys directly on your device. It also provides support for passphrase protected keys.
Version 2.02 doesn't support passphrases, so make sure you don't set a passphrase when you create the key you're using. Also, for the authentication to work, you need to add your public key to the ~/ssh/authorized_keys file on the server.

On the Mac, to enable SSH, all you need to do is go to:
System Preferences - Sharing - Remote Login (enable)

Hope this helps,

Raf.
