    SSH would be very nice. I am also rooting for irssi or bitchX.

    Any SSH app that makes the app store will be a client and not a server, the reason most of us want an SSH app is to be able to SSH into servers that we are the admins off not to SSH into the iPhone itself, Apple will NEVER allow that through the API.

    I second that. I am over jailbreaking the iPhone. I just want an SSH Client to admin other systems. I was told by MochaSoft that they have an SSH client into Apple for review, but the encryption could be a holdup because of export laws.

    That might be a big issue for SSH due to the crypto, but for now jailbreaking seems to be the only way. What a hassle..

    I haven't received the iPhone yet (mine just got delivered to the store today!!) but here's a question..

    Back in the day (read: 10 - 15 years ago), PGP was updated and released outside the US due to crypto laws and patents (namely the RSA and IDEA patents) still being in use. GnuPG is still available outside the US because of those same laws.. So they can be imported into places where the law allows, but not exported.

    Long story short, can you buy apps from an App store outside the country you are in? if so, why couldn't they offer an SSH client or PGP/GnuPG like client at an App store in another country (say, Germany or Italy)? Shouldn't that be possible, and work within the import laws of a given country?

    I have an SSH app that is pretty much ready except for legal hang ups. The only thing holding it up is the export issues around the encryption. This is both a requirement of Apple and the US Government.

    Could this not be added to the UK or European App store, or so, so you wouldn't have to worry about export issues? At least in the US, the problem is export laws, not import..

    I'm hoping your iSSH makes it through quickly. I'd kill for an SSH app (and an IRC app as mentioned above, which SSH would allow).
