    Hello,
    I'm a UNIX geek and think it would be cool to login to a UNIX box from my touch. Before I go the Jailbreak route I would like to know if this app will allow me to connect to and control a UNIX box? Can I run vi?
    Thanks,
    Ken

    you need to also install BSD Subsystem, and OpenSSH to actually SSH from the touch, and just personally I prefer Term-vt100 compared to the more basic mobile terminal

    Thanks Alex. So Term-vt100 is an app that I can install after I do the jailbreak thing?

    Yes. Access to a terminal to control my *nix boxes would seal the deal and I'd have to purchase an IPod Touch
