SSH Tunnel

Available in :

Before you start, please read the following instructions carefully.

If possible, please uninstall 1.4.X and any other previous editions before updating to 1.5.X.

"SSH Tunnel Provides a Secure Internet Connection for Your Android Device with One Click" -- LifeHacker

SSHTunnel is a SSH tunnel app for Android System. With this app and a configured server (typically configured with sshd and nginx / squid), you can easily browse internet through a SSH tunnel on your android devices.


1.To set proxy for the entire system or individual apps, you MUST ROOT YOUR DEVICES FIRST. For those ROMs without IPTABLES module, this app cannot work properly either.

2. To work with your private/public key, please store your key (only OpenSSH format, not putty) as the file /sdcard/sshtunnel/key

3. This App is DESIGNED ONLY FOR those guys blocked by Great Fire Wall in CHINA. If you'd like to get a GENERAL SSH CLIENT, please search "connectbot" in the market. Sorry for the inconvenience.

4. There exists a DNS Proxy in SSHTunnel to solve the DNS Pollution problem in China, which would try to fetch pre-defined HOSTS information from our web server. All these HOSTS files and source codes are open to public.

5. This project is published under the GNU General Public License v3.0. For more information, please visit our project site:

Works with password only Fails with RSA key setup in JB4.2.1

works well This does what it says on the box. Works well for tunneling my IRC and web traffic through a secure firewall box. My only complaint is with the handling of the profiles. It would be nice if the app started with a simple list of profiles to let the user choose which one they'd like to use. Instead, it starts with the current profile's settings.

Nice Very useful app :)

Almost perfect Very nice. This is good for having if you like to use open WiFi hotspots, too. Just set up your own little linux server at home, and configure this to use it. Now all your traffic is encrypted from phone to your server, away from snoopers on the same hotspot you're using. Only issue I have is that the auto-connect based on SSID feature seems to not work. But that's certainly not a deal-breaker.

working perfectly

Excerllent Pretty stable and easy to use. As there are not much choices for proxy apps on Android, this one is good enough. Besides, it's free!

Thank you for everything I had issues running sshtunnel at first on 4.2.1 and couldn't figure out why my PuTTy keys weren't supported. I emailed Dev asking for help and to report my issues w/4.2.1 he was cool enough to point me in the right direction. A couple hours later there was a update in the market and sshtunnel supports 4.2.1, keys are accepted, and I'm loving it.

Great! Can't live without it.

Great App Handy for tunneling into my home network while I am away. Thanks a billion.
