Also check the Aftermarket Software Forum and the Sponsors Forum here. I believe you'll find the answer there.

Search is your friend.

Hope this helps.

Idokorro has by far the best SSH program.

Working here, I have had some influence over the department that does MobileSSH development, which added a lot of very useful features that make it the best MobileSSH software.

It has shortcuts for easily transmitting CTRL and ALT keys, and the splitscreen makes it very friendly on high-lag networks (most carrier wireless networks are laggy), as well as the new ability to multitask multiple concurrent telnet/ssh connections, and other useful features.

The free trial of Idokorro MobileSSH with ssh/telnet/3270/5250 is at:

You can try out other competing software such as midpssh and compare the software -- and see what works best -- a lot of corporations prefer MobileSSH.

Idokorro rocks, I've been using it for about a year now.

We have a number of Pix firewall devices deployed at various remote sites and it comes in VERY handy for checking on the status of a VPN tunnel or somesuch without having to boot up my work laptop, etc, etc, etc.
