A complete SSHd, SFTP, SCP and Telnet server! From now on you can run a complete SSH daemon (server) with support for multiple users, public key authentication, and you can even set a directory per user for SFTP and SCP.

NO ROOT is required, but if you do have a rooted device you can run SSH as super user if you want. The shell will only work on ARM devices, however, the SFTP and SCP servers will work on all devices.

Note 1.
To run on ports below 1024 search for Android app Port Forwarder Ultimate.

Note 2. If you find a bug or have a problem please contact us by email since we cannot help you if you post it in the reviews.

And we haven’t mentioned all yet; you can even set a dynamic DNS updater! So you can always access your device from everywhere, even if the IP changed!

It also has extensive logging functionality, and you can even set the app to email you the log automatically!

    I use this to transfer audio books from my Linux box to my phone. It works well with ssh, scp, and sftp. Only problem is that sometimes it stops a server after a couple minutes.

    Worked first time. Set up was straightforward. I'm very pleased not to be mucking around anymore with PTP or MTP for installing project manuals and reference document trees. Nicely done!

    Works well with Sprint Galaxy S4. Oddly, when using terminal on client computer, I can connect but scp is an unknown command. I don't think it's the fault of the app though and can connect to and transfer files through Win SCP and Gnome File Commander pretty seamlessly.
