Yea Terminal is just always so confusing to me. I'll need to search some guides on it as that seems the easiest way. I downloaded Forklift but its a 14 day trial.You can SSH natively via terminal on macs so you don't need any 3rd party software
On Windows, PuTTY is a popular SSH client

Ughh still dont understand it
I was trying to get in my iPad/iPhone via OpenSSH to look for any of the supposed malware that some jailbreakers could be at risk for. I know I haven't installed anything shady but just wanted to be sure. I managed to get into my device through Terminal but always get lost trying to navigate around and delete stuff.What're you trying to do with SSH? It is primarily a command line type tool, if you would call it
I don't think there are any GUI implementations of SSH besides maybe file access
I should probably stay away from it then, as for the second part of your post I'm lost would have to do some research there.As long as you install stuff from known "safe" sources then you should be fine, opening up SSH on your iPad introduces a new hole into the security of the device by opening a new port with a default password that everyone has. If I'm not mistaken it's "root" "alpine", which is the typically the first and second words in a password attack dictionary file.
If you are that concerned about the security of your device then you probably need to look at the payloads of the packages that you downloaded, research them and verify their integrity using OpenSSL. (either md5, sha1, or sha256 depending on what you are verifying against). SSHing into your device opens up another port which is commonly used for attack vectors.
