JuiceSSH is a free and useful Android app that can make managing Linux servers easy through ssh. It serves same function as Putty in accessing remote servers from Windows or Linux systems.
Install it from here or search for “Juice SSH” within Google Play from within the Android based mobile device / tablet.
After installation, access JuiceSSH through the cool lemon icon and select “Connections” and then “New Connection”.
This is similar to using Putty or similar SSH client where, first a profile of the remote server is to be created with it’s IP address, port number and profile name, followed by the ssh credentials.
Finally, tap the newly created server profile to initiate a SSH connection, enter the password and select “Ok”.
The all too familiar Linux Terminal will now show up and which will allow managing the remote server as needed, all through an Android based phone or tablet. 🙂
