A complete and free 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.

In this version you can add one server (SSH, Telnet or Dynamic DNS Updaters), three users and three optional allowed IP addresses per server. If you want to be able to add unlimited items please buy SSH Server Pro. If you buy the pro version you will support development, will be able to add unlimited items and see no advertisements!

    This may have room for improvement but it is perfect for me. I just put on a public key and was able to back up my asus tp201 internal memory with a little python script and ssh over wifi and it was fast. Nothing else worked. Thanks!

    Works as advertised. I like the UI and preferences - was able to set custom port and user/passwd easily then ssh in from terminal; tested sftp and that worked well, too. Thank you dev(s).

    I had installed different apps for ssh but they turned out useless. But this is very good. The kind of interface they offer and all is excellent. But some how from I linux u am not able to ssh but I am able to fmtp which fairly does the task for me. Overall, its one of the best apps to install ssh server on ur android.
