Telnet or SSH to Internet Servers

Tail that logfile from anywhere you have cell coverage with the MidpSSH telnet/SSH client.

Once you’ve configured your device for TCP/IP, you can use open source Telnet and SSH clients to connect to a server on the Internet. No doubt you won’t be able to use your god-like vi skills on your BlackBerry keyboard, but this will give you the full SSH access you sometimes can’t live without.

Install and Use MidpSSH

Similar to most applications, MidpSSH (http://www.xk72.com/midpssh/) provides over-the-air installs and downloads for installing via Desktop Manager and Application Loader. MidpSSH also provides various versions of their software. You can get the full version that has support for any of the various protocols you’d need to use: Telnet, SSH1, SSH2, and various combinations of these. The space-conscious user will like the ability to install a version of the software that contains support only for the protocols they need and nothing more.
