This is a survey of all the Palm OS telnet and SSH applications that I'm aware of.
Actually, there's one SSH app that I've omitted, Expand Beyond's PocketAdmin, due to its egregious enterprise-level pricing and lack of a downloadable demo. You can check out its entry in my Windows Mobile SSH Apps Buying Guide (it's cross-platform) for some info on the app's pluses and minuses.
I've also omitted terminal apps that only work over a serial connection, like TTY master LITE, since that's not of interest to me.
I originally put this guide together while testing out the ability of these applications to connect to raw TCP ports from my Handspring Treo 300 over Sprint's PCS Vision network, so the selection of features looked at reflects that. The summary of my findings in that area is that there is no ideal Palm OS app for connecting to raw ports, but on the Treo 700p at least, CS Online is the most capable.
If what you're looking for is an SSH client rather than an app for connecting to raw TCP ports, you can find some additional information in the TreoCentral.com thread "telnet/ssh for Treo 300?", particularly in my first post therein, but that predates the existence of the pssh and TuSSH programs, which are far superior to the old Mocha Pocket Telnet and Top Gun ssh.
Now, you can either view the database on:
The latter is useful for side-by-side comparison of any two or more records, or to keep field headings always on screen without having to repeat them within the table. Note that you can resize the frames as desired (e.g. to make the top frame only big enough for the column headings).
