SSHelper is an advanced multi-protocol secure server for the Android platform.

SSHelper works just fine with a normal unrooted Android device โ€” i.e. your device. It also offers special features on rooted devices.

SSHelper works as an application and as a service. As a service it runs in the background providing secure communications protocols without requiring user attention.

SSHelper supports interactive Secure Shell (hereafter SSH) sessions and various kinds of transfers including scp sftp and rsync on all common platforms

On Windows SSHelper works with WinSCP PuTTY and similar programs.

On Linux apart from normal SSH shell session activities SSHelper can be used directly with file browsers for seamless filesystem browsing and transfers by specifying the "sftp" protocol.

On the Mac SSHelper works with Cyberduck and similar programs.

SSHelper versions >= 7.8 accepts any network type that Android recognizes -- it's no longer limited to wireless networks.

SSHelper announces itself on your network by way of Zeroconf/Bonjour an efficient way to configure a local network.

SSHelper includes a log monitor Web server showing an activity log on local network browsers.

SSHelper also includes a clipboard Web server that permits read/write access to the Android clipboard from local network browsers.

SSHelper is free open-source and there are no ads. It's licensed under the GPL and the source is freely available.
