For those who haven't seen the previous version, Dropbear is a small SSH2 Server and Client running on a variety of POSIX-based platforms.
It has been mainly developed by Matt Johnston (see matt's web site).
PSPSSH is a port of the version 0.48.1 to the PSP.
This ssh client gives you a remote access to your PC (if you have a SSH server installed of course), and you can then enter commands and run scripts as if you were directly in front of your PC.
This software is usefull for linux users who might want to connect to their PC/server from anywhere using a wifi connection, and then read their mail using text based tool such as pine, elm or mutt, run text irc client, watch log files, edit configuration files, restart services etc ...
Change log :
What's new in version 1.0.6 :
- Support IR keyboards !
Credits and license :
The terminal Vt100 emulation part of PSPSSH is based on the work
of Danzel for his Telnet client for PSP.
The IR keyboard support is based on the work of Harald Fielker
(author of the PSP IR Keyboard Library)
This software is distributed under several open-source/free software
licenses, and mainly the MIT/X Consortium License.
See LICENSE.txt file for all details and information about it.
It has been developed on linux for Firmware 1.5 and 3.03-OE, and for the IR keyboard
part it has been tested using a Targus Universal IR Wireless keyboard.
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.
A binary version for firmware 1.5 is available here :
A binary version for firmware 3.x-OE is available here :

Thanks to Matt Johnston for Dropbear, to Danzel and Jeff Chen for their virtual keyboard,
thanks once more to Danzel for the VT100 emulation, and thanks to all PSPSDK coders.
Special thanks to Cool Matty and Delight1 for their feedback, and to Paul and Fanjita who motivated me to add IR keyboards stuff !
** UPDATE ** : For those who have a Targus keyboard here is the keymap file i use : targus map files

Cool. Now it works!
There are two things that disturb me:
1) I can't type symbol pipe |
2) it takes long time between pushing key and appearing corresponding symbol on the screen.
Thank you for the answers. Now I don't have problems with symbols. Almost.
What about a slow connection. I can't understand why we have this sort of problem with an ordinary typing? It seems that this problem occurred only due to typing. Quasi I have smart connection from PSP and slow to PSP. May be are there some unneeded timeouts in the code?
connection in ssh with the psp is very slow (i don't know why for the moment), but this explain why you see what you entered few seconds after ... The PSP send characters you entered to the remote host, then the remote host as the ssh client to display those characters, so that's why there is a delay between the moment you press keys on your keyboard and the moment you can see them on your screen.
Thanks for a sweet app which iv been waiting for a long time i liked Danzel's telnet client but lets just face it ssh>telnet. Anyway I'm just wondering if it's possible for you to add an option which makes it possible to turn off the bar on top of the screen (the one with the battery status). I would just love to have a fullscreen terminal if thats possible. Thanks once again
Thanks for your comment . Yes it's possible to add such option ... may be in next version,
Take care, Zx
Hi, Zx .... first all thanks for this nice apps!
Like I told on other forum I found one problem only, using a universal palmOne keyboard, 3.40OE-A and wifi with WPA crypt, I tried without and crypt, but the refresh not working... I type one char and this is not displayed... until I press another key ... and when open a program like top, this not refreshing the screen....
