SSHelper is an advanced, multi-protocol, secure server for the Android platform.

SSHelper works just fine with a normal, unrooted Android device — i.e. your device. It also offers special features on rooted devices.

SSHelper works as an application and as a service. As a service it runs in the background, providing secure communications protocols without requiring user attention.

SSHelper supports interactive Secure Shell (hereafter SSH) sessions and various kinds of transfers including scp, sftp, and rsync, on all common platforms:

On Windows, SSHelper works with WinSCP, PuTTY and similar programs.

On Linux, apart from normal SSH shell session activities, SSHelper can be used directly with file browsers for seamless filesystem browsing and transfers by specifying the "sftp:" protocol.

On the Mac, SSHelper works with Cyberduck and similar programs.

NOTE: For SSHelper versions 7.1 and newer, fully interactive shell sessions have been restored.

SSHelper announces itself on your network by way of Zeroconf/Bonjour, an efficient way to configure a local network.

SSHelper includes a log monitor Web server showing an activity log on local network browsers.

SSHelper also includes a clipboard Web server that permits read/write access to the Android clipboard from local network browsers.

SSHelper is free, open-source and there are no ads. It's licensed under the GPL and the source is freely available.

    Needs Tasker integration to allow automated termination, or at least a "one-shot" option to terminate on disconnect. That way it doesn't need to be running all the time consuming resources unnecessarily.

    I finally can use rsync and ssh for my phone/tablet. The best of all is that it does not need to be rooted. Thanks veyr much for his!

    Works perfectly on android 4.4.2 for rsync and scp. Does NOT need to be rooted. Thank you. I now have it start as soon as connect to home wifi, (so that my server can rsync a backup of my images.)
