What is this?
This app is to aid developers and interested users get easy access to their Playbook via SSH.
The app is entirely standalone and does not require Java or the Playbook SDK installed to enable SSH.
It is written in Qt and is able to run on: Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, BSD, QNX, Symbian, Android and iOS.
How does it work?
1. Simply extract the provided package anywhere on your system. Then run ‘Connect’.
2. Then enter your Playbook’s IP and password in the fields provided. It will remember these for you.
3. Now press ‘Connect’ and it will run an SSH server on your Playbook for you.
4. Now press ‘SSH Terminal’ and it will open up an SSH connection to your Playbook.
That’s it. I have made it as simple as possible in this initial client.
Where can I get it?
I am providing Windows and Symbian binaries only at this stage. If you want this to run on your phone or another OS, simply request it here and I will provide it if there is interest. Some things need to be changed (such as SSH client) on other platforms.
PlaybookConnect v0.1 (Windows) [9.2MB]
Note: Package is large as it includes Qt.
PlaybookConnect v0.1 (Symbian) [0.02MB]
