    To make sure I understand what you're asking, are you looking for an iOS app that you can use to SSH into servers?

    No, I don't need SSH client. I like tunnel my whole device via a SSH connection. something like VPN.

    SSH tunnels don't work like a VPN. They are used to tunnel a specific port to a specific IP address. I supposed you could use the tunnel as a transport for a VPN, but you'd still need a VPN set up to "tunnel the whole device".

    In order to tunnel all iOS Internet traffic using SSH:

    1. Get this app: SSHTunnel (it's Free for 1 tunnel at time)
    2. Create a tunnel with type "Dynamic" and local bind port 8089.
    3. Create config.pac file with content:

    function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {
    return "SOCKS";
    , where 8089 is a local tunnel port.
    4. Put config.pac file to the Dropbox and copy download link. Link must have the suffix "dl=1".
    5. Go to Settings > General > Network > Wi-Fi and tap the blue arrow on the right side of the entry for your network. Scroll down to the "Proxy" section and tap "Auto". Enter the Dropbox URL.
    6. Have FUN!
