  1. Agent Password Caching

    Hi, it is annoying to keep typing in the private key password. I'm used to do that one time on my notebook. My old ssh app iSSH was able to do same but they stopped developing the app so I needed to switch

    • Including Voice coding will be great improvement

      Since the keyboard in cell phone is very hard to use,especially in bus. It definitely will be an very useful to including voice coding which I mean you can develop a speech recognition tool that convert voice in to Linux command. Although iPhone itself can covert to natural language but the language list does not include Linux which is much more simpler language.

      • icon badge if text received

        show an icon badge if an open connection received some text while the app is in the background

        the number in the badge can be the number of connections that received text
        or maybe the total nr of lines that were received.

        very handy if you want to be notified when a long-running job ends.

        • When following a link, replace "localhost" with hostname

          If I type "curl http://localhost," and tap the link, I don't want to access localhost on my device (which doesn't exist), but what the server sees as localhost, aka the server itself. I want localhost to be replaced with the hostname of the server.

            • TouchID sudo commands

              When executing a sudo command, have TouchID authentication to fill out the password instead of manually typing it.

              • Disable screen resolution change after opening keyboard control

                I noticed that when I'm SSH into a server and I open the keyboard it resizes the screen resolution which causes the application I am in to crash. It would be nice to have it not resize the resolution and for the keyboard to just cover that screen space until I minimize it again.

                  • Import key files from iCloud Drive

                    Would totally be worth upgrading to pro for this. I keep all my keys in iCloud Drive, and importing them is currently a pain.

                      • VPN Client, auto vpn startup with connection request

                        In an enterprise environment usually you have multiple hosts to administer behind an enterprise firewall. With iPhone you can establish a VPN and the ssh connect. But this is very cumbersome when administering many hosts in multiple locations.

                          It would be great if I could change the colorshemes by my self.
                          Such as textcolor background color and highlight color.

                            • Wake On Lan

                              Coming from iSSH, they have a nice WOL feature. On the hosts screen it shows which hosts are up (green), down (red), or unknown (yellow). If you tap on the red, down icon and that host has WOL enabled, it will send the magic packet to wake it up.

                                • Allow Port Forwarding to restrict access to localhost (security)

                                  Currently, Port Forwarding allows both the phone and anyone with the phone's IP to tunnel through SSH to the destination address. While this may be desirable in some circumstances, in most, it opens a security hole through a pre-secured tunnel into the destination network/host.

                                  I would suggest that the default be to restrict access to the localhost, but give us a tickbox on the port forwarding setup page with the option to "Allow access other than localhost" for those that really do want that (unsafe) behavior. For example, if the endpoint is secured by other means.

                                  If it helps, SSH…

                                  • Preference option to hide on-screen keyboard when bluetooth detected

                                    I use a Zagg case/keyboard, so I almost never use the on-screen keyboard. I just got this app and tap to get control keys, which is great (since I use screen and need the control key often), but when I type on my bluetooth keyboard, a large grey box fills the bottom half of the screen where the on-screen keyboard would be, and if I click the arrow to make it go away, it pops back up as soon as I type something. I would like it to go away and stay away, possibly automatically if bluetooth use is detected,…

                                    • External keyboard and special ALT characters like {,[,|

                                      I have an external keyboard attached to my IPad but unfortunately I am having issues to type in characters which are triggered by the ALT key on my keyboard. The special bash combination alt + r is working flawlessy but I cannot even type a | (PIPE, not even in this editor) which is often needed on the shell.
