Trying to set up a terminal on Android to connect to Ubuntu Server.
Basically, I have a Minecraft server running Ubuntu Server,and I would like to be able to access it remotely from my Droid. I am just not sure which app to get, or what command line I would use to access the remote computer. Any help is appreciated.
Take a look at ConnectBot in the Marketplace. It is an SSH client for Android and as long as your Ubuntu server has SSH enabled and is visible from the internet, it should work fine. You can even use it to do SSH tunneling of VNC if you need to access a GUI from your phone.
Do you have all repositories enabled for your distro? Check that, then make sure all updates are in order for your system: "sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get upgrade ; updatedb". <-- Type "Y/N" where appropriate.
Try searching for "openssh" in Synaptic and installing whatever is applicable there. Also, from the command line make sure to have done "sudo apt-get install openssh-client" as well as "sudo apt-get install openssh-server". Hope that helps you.
It worked, but it refused my connection before I could even type the password, I set the connection as Name@localhost:22, so I'm not sure if I did something wrong. On another note, What is a good client to connect my Windows 7 desktop to this server? They are both plugged up to my router, and I would be thrilled if there was someway to open up the server files in Windows Explorere and make changes there instead of making it crazy complicated with Dropbox.
EDIT: Finally got it working, I'm not even sure what I did though, but I am still looking for a way to share files between the server and my Windows machine.
