    An SSH client is a program on your computer that allows you to access the filesystem of your iPod touch through wifi via SSH.

    "SSH" stands for Secure Shell. In this case, it's the process of connecting your iPod touch to your computer via an SFTP program such as WinSCP, to access it's file system. You can read/edit/add/remove files and many more commands. In order to use SSH, you need to have OpenSSH installed on your iPod touch and have a Wi-Fi connection available.
