Android SSH setup with SSHTunnel
Last updated by Shayne M on May 22, 2013 10:37
To use our SSH service on android we recommend the SSHTunnel application in the android market:
- Stable Version - https://market.android.com/details?id=org.sshtunnel&hl=en
- Beta Version (much faster, requires root)- https://market.android.com/details?id=org.sshtunnel.beta
To be able to use the full features of this application, we recommend Rooting (Getting full admin/root access to) your phone or tablet.
Run the SSHTunnel application, and enter the server address and port for the server you want to connect to - these are available in our members area under "servers".
Below that, enter your VPNSecure username and password
Scroll down to Port Forwarding, and tick "Use socks proxy", select any local port, and choose "Global proxy" to forward all traffic via our server. Alternatively you can leave "Global Proxy" unticked,, and select individual applications to use the proxy by selecting the "Individual proxy" option.
Once you've selected these options, just tick "Tunnel Switch" at the top of the menu to enable the SSH Tunnel.
