Default I have a few OpenSource software questions~

Please Login to Remove!

Well I am new to this whole blackberry thing and I am wondering if anyone knows of a few good specific software titles exist that are opensource and free.

1. A good Putty like/SSH client does'nt need to do port tunnleing but that is always a plus

2. The GNU C++ compiler or any C++ compiler for that matter that will run on BB OS

3. A strong VNC client one that has some sort of encryption built in ... even if I have to do the certs manually thats fine. I just need to be able to access my home server when I am on the road I generally forget my homework on my computer so being able to do some file xfers would be a nice feature also.

4. Also a PDF reader... I dont have my BB yet Its comming in the mail within the next few days and I am not sure if there is any native support for PDF files. I was wondering if it has built in PDF support or If I need to install an app to read them


thanks .... Conrad

I just found this myself - search for "midpssh". It's not the most stable ssh client I've ever used but it works great for being free.

I can view pdf's fine without any 3rd party sw, but I am on a BES too so I'm not sure if that matters.
