ssh console from Android phone to Linux desktop

Hi all. Does anyone know of an Android app that allows command line = terminal = console access from a phone to a Linux host?

There are various apps that provide gui access, over vnc or rdp; not talking about that.

There are apps to access your (rooted) phone from your desktop, but I want the other way round.

And there seem to be lots of apps that use ssh to act as multimedia remote controls; don't want that.

I can't see to find a simple ssh command line app.

connectbot looks like what I want, thanks

I already found some apps to access the phone from the PC, so I was only asking about the other way round. I'll update the OP in case anyone else has apps to suggest.
