The applications that Android uses from the Play Store allow us to carry out various activities and transmit functional tools on our mobile phones.

How to create an SSH server on my Android for free

So let's start with the creation of the SSH server and for that, we will use a perfect application for it and it is called SSH Server.

As we have already mentioned, this can be downloaded directly and for free from the Play Store. Once you download and install the application, you will have a clean interface with only the options above.

The only bad thing is that it is completely in English, but if you follow the steps that we will give you below you will not have any problems in creating the SSH server.

Now to begin we have to click on the plus sign icon enclosed in a circle and called Add. This will generate an options menu and must choose SSH S erver.

By clicking on this option, a window will appear on the screen, in which we will configure the data of our server. Where we will place the name of the server we are creating, as well as the port we will use to connect to the SSH server. Once this data is entered, we will find other interesting options.

Next we will have 4 options that we can configure and they are the following Enable Shell, if we enable this option we will be able to control the mobile device from a secure terminal.

Obviously it must be enabled, the next option is Enable SFTP, this so that the SSH server also functions as a secure FTP server.

Now we get the Enable SCP option, when it is enabled it allows a safe copy and finally we will find the option Set custom shell start commands.

Here we are going to configure some parameters that will be executed when the server starts. After seeing these options, we will proceed to the next step.

We will now click on the Users option located at the top right next to Settings. This is to be able to create all those users who will connect through the server SSH.

The next step is to click on the Add option. And we will see a new window, where we will enter data such as username, password to be able to connect.

It also allows us to configure security certificates, so that we can connect more securely. After we have configured everything to do with our SSH server, let's go back to the main window and click on the Start option and then start the server operation.

As a last step, being able to connect to our server means using an SSH client and in this way being able to control our Android device remotely. This way we finished this article which showed you how easy it is create an SSH server on my Android for free.
