launch ssh or other command line app from desktop shortcut kde


I know this will get answered in under a minute or so... How do you launch a command line app (I want to use ssh) from a shortcut (either desktop or keyboard) in KDE? I created a link to application and put the comand "sudo ssh 10.72.11.111" (w/o quotes) in it but it does not work, just runs then closes and I never see the window. I also tried sudo ssh 10.72.11.111 & but no luck. Thanks

xterm -e "sudo ssh <user@host>"

Though, honestly, sudo isn't necessary here.
