Android :: How Does Connectbot Work / What Do You Use It ForApr 15, 2010
How does it work and what do you use it for? Don't know much about servers but never hurts to learn. I know I will probably end up loving the idea.

Okay, folks...my GPS is pooched. I found the thread about resetting it...but I need my MSL....and i have *NO* clue what to do with connectbot. All the instructions just say "Use it to get your MSL"....*NOT* a lot of help, there.......
Where am i supposed to connect-to...and what do I do *after* that?
I assume I need to use the ##4772579#, since I can't type any text into the phone dialer...I get the MSL prompt from there....but I obviously can't get any further.
First, I'm new to Java and Android Development so I hope you're patient with me :)
My aim in my first app is to establish an ssh-connection to my linux machine running openssh and sending commands to it on the one hand and receiving stdout on the other hand.
Since there is an app for doing all the ssh that absolutely benefit to my needs, (connectbot) I thought it would be the best not reinventing the wheel and using connectbot for sending commands.
As I read there is a general mechanism in android to do so called intents. And I found that connectbot seems to offer such intents, but I don't feel able to use them at the moment and I'm not quite sure if it it works that way in general:
As I said I'm new to Java and android and only did a few hello world examples using these great xtensivearts video tutorials:
So its a bit hard for me to get started the right way. What do I want to do exactly?
Simply onpressbutton in my app -> sending a certain command in the background to the ssh-connected machine via connectbot or anything that can provide that.
In further development I would like to get data from the ssh-connected machine (stdout would be enough due to I could handle the output server-sided)
All this has to take place in the activity of my app. Even username and password should be configured via the settings of my app.
It simply should use the basic features of ssh via connectbot.
I would be really happy if you could help me getting started right with this issue. I know it sounds a bit hard for the first app but I really need ssh in my app cause it would greatly facilitate the server sided development.
Just recently got my HTC Magic, i love it, such a cracking OS & Phone combination, lot of my fellow colleagues wish they had not followed the crowd having seen my handset
Right back on topic, i was at the pub with a group of work mates, and we got onto SSH for the Magic (as you do) so i installed ConnectBot.
Great first impressions, easily managed to connect to a box (although it does seam to time out for password entry rather fast?) I could gain access and holding the track ball for Cntrl is a nice option. Which actually makes it useable as i have to use screens all the time in SSH.
My problem is the keyboard, the App looks like it was designed for the G1, after i had done a few commands i minimized the keyboard so i could see more, but then could not get it back.
Is there a way to bring up the software keyboard, while in ConnectBot?
Ok, be gentle with me I'm not a developer but a network engineer wanting to use Connectbot on my HTC Desire to remote admen some of our servers. I'm concerned about other apps on the device capturing root passwords - is this possible, can I look at the apps installed to determine whether or not they can do this, is this the right place for this question?View 3 Replies View Related
I have google voice and use it for every phone call I make. I heard that there were issues with several gvoice updates, so I haven't updated google voice since 0.2.8 and it is working just fine- every call connects, no problems. Is it worth updating to the newest version of google voice with push? For those of you with 2.1 on your Eris- does google voice work for you?View 12 Replies View Related
I'm searching for android phones that can use video out to the tv for a research project. I'm considering the HTC Touch Pro.
Is there anything I have to do specifically to get the video out to work (for displaying my app on the tv)? or will the phone just display a running app on the tv without extra work?
I'm trying to determine whether or not my phone is defective, or if this is a current problem with the Cliq.
Of the apps I've downloaded, only a few of them have worked. Of those few that work, some don't work right. Has anyone had problems with these apps crashing on them, or just not working correctly?
- Nice Battery (see description at bottom of: My Ultimate CLIQ settings (so far))
- WeatherBug (kept showing the wrong location, crashed when trying to change location)
- Snake - doesn't work just says its "paused"
- RingDroid - crashes when I select the "Facebook Pop" button
- Layar - screen is rotated 90 degrees at all times
There have been others, but usually I just uninstall them right after discovering it doesn't work right.
I've had an HTC Desire on Orange in the UK for about 6 weeks and it is having persistent problem. Firstly despite having a strong 4-bar out of 4 signal, online services and the internet do not work at all when a 3G signal is being received (e.g. news, weather, all widgets, internet, email etc).Calls and texts do work however with a 3G signal.But when a 3g+ signal (HSDPA) is being received, all internet services as above work fine.However, when a 3+ signal is being received, the phone does not make or receive calls or text messages, and often fails to send texts. Calls I make immediately shut down (bleep + �call ended�), and incoming calls from other people go straight to answerphone. Also often when turning the data connection on/off, it freezes and has to be rebooted, and turning airplane setting on and off does not fix the problem.
I have also tried the different network settings (GSM, WCDMA, auto, etc). �GSM� sends and receives calls and texts but doesn�t work (or is incredibly slow) with internet, and �auto� and �WCDMA only� show the problems as above.I don't think this is a network/coverage issues as, as I have seen many people reporting these same issues on other networks and in other parts of the UK, and I have read that other people are having to manually turn off HSDPA to be able to make calls (using an app?). Even if I can stop HSDPA from connecting to make sure the phone works, I still can�t use the internet at all on 3g � even GSM works better!
Finally, when I connect to a bluetooth device (e.g. car and headphones) the phone will connect briefly, and then randomly disconnect. I have also seen this issue reported elsewhere.I very much like the phone and don't want to get rid of it, but these problems are making the phone unuseable.Also I don't know if I should be contacting HTC or Orange about this. Will the upcoming Android 2.2 fix these problems?Anyone know how to fix this or if I need a new handset? Are there any apps that can help? Also does the Nexus One have these problems and are they fixed by Froyo?
So I made a discovery - my dialpad doesn't work during a call. Even if I bring it up via the softkeys, the numbers don't register a tap...anyone. else have this issue or is it just my phone?View 49 Replies View Related
I have so far found two bugs in Galaxo 1.6.3:
a) Speaker doesn't work in call (very weak). works well in ringtones etc.
b) Scrolling contacts by letter doesn't work.
Other than that this is a leap forward, especially with the overclock options!
Both bugs, as well as others, fixed in 220.127.116.11 update!

I seen on a thread that u can change your data network buy dialing #*#*4636*#*#.This evo 4g is always on 3g network but never goes to edge.Can I put the phone on gsm only and not have to worry about 3g coming on. Im asking because 3g runs down your battery faster than edge. I put it on gsm only but the 3g symbol still showing that its receiving 3g data. I know on the hd 2 you can turn it of thus saving a lot of battery life.View 3 Replies View Related

Usually use 4g since it works great in my area, but now since i found out that wifi uses less battery i wanted to switch over to it. Now it wont connect. Ive restarted and pulled the battery out as well. It finds my network then try to connect and it wont. 3g stays on. The check mark is on for wifi but says disconnected. Reset my wireless modem and now its working. Disregard this unless others are having problems. Try resetting your wireless modem.View 2 Replies View Related
Is there a hotkey for the evo to enter the word easier then having to click the green box with the word in it? I think it takes a bit more time to lift your finger and click the green box then go back down to the keyboard again to type. Or is there a hotkey that I should be using to do this?View 2 Replies View Related

I just got my HTC Hero yesterday. I was very impressed, but when I wasn't able to connect to my wireless AP I got very frustrated.The router I have is a NETGEAR MR814v2. I normally use it with 64bit WEP security. When I try to connect on my hero, I get prompted for a password, which I then fill in, and then it just says "Remembered, secured with WEP". So it doesn't connect. And it doesn't give me the Wifi icon in the top.View 2 Replies View Related

I'm looking for a app that would work only with the gps, not 3g
So that it could work were there is no coverage
What i need is it to use gps to fix latitude and longitude positions and so that it could record positions and show me the direction to a direction i enter using Lat.and Long.
If its of any relevance i need it to work on a motorola Milestone/ european droid
I'm in Australia on the Optus network (I'm not sure that matters, but I'll mention it anyway) and I just can't seem to get MMS to work.
I've trawled the web, found heaps of posts for the settings, tried them all, any time I try to send or receive an MMS, I get a "general network failure". All other things work perfectly.
I'm not sure how to do some of these things, I'm new to the rooting community, but here's my story:
I want to get the two OTA updates on my phone, but everytime I try to, it downloads it, restarts to install and as it is installing (after it shut down) it stops and I get the green man with a exclamation point...
then it locks up. I don't know what to do.
I downloaded mabilo ring tones and also tried ringlert. I download a ring tone set it to default and when someone calls I get nothing. I used both before on my eris with no problem but they do not seem to work on my EVO.View 6 Replies View Related
I have developed an application for Android and do not know yet whether its graphics are displayed properly on EVO 4G.It works fine on devices that have medium density screens, but I have no exact idea how the app's user interface might behave in EVO 4G's category (high pixel density).Can anyone help me and make some test? It would help me a lot. You can find my app in Android Market (free) under the name 'Sticky Note Cork&Orc'.
1) Do you see the wooden edges if you scroll the cork board entirely to the bottom/ or to the right edge.
2) Are the graphics (cork board background/ buttons) strongely fuzzy or sharp enough?
3) Are some graphics cut out of display?
4) Does the virtual keyboard (partly) overlap the text box if you make some input? (important)
For some reason I can't get my MMS to work. It's always been buggy, ie a message comes in and it won't download the first time and normally I have to go into the messaging app for it to work right. But yesterday I sent an MMS and my friend didn't get it. I tried again with another person and same thing. Then today another friend sent me an MMS and I can't open it in Handcent or Messaging. I'm rooted with Virtuous Rom.PS - Now the message just says downloading on Handcent and on the Messages app and I can't cancel it to retry. Just sits there forever.View 3 Replies View Related
