    does anyone know of an app for
    my iPhone that acts like terminal
    on mac os x? Like a command line
    interface for my iPhone?

    I have touchterm and I am thinking
    about getting iSSH. Can I view
    Local files like can I see files on my
    iPhone? Also I am new to ssh, are
    there sample sites that would let
    me login?

    You can't see local files as that would go against the rules of the SDK. That'd make jailbreaking unnecessary if you could see your local files.

    what about a sample site that
    would give info like username and
    password so I could try to use
    touchterm or issh? Also I own
    a MacBook pro laptop could I set
    my laptop up if I had an Internet
    connection to do a remote login?

    You can try mobileterminal if your phone is jailbroken. It's a nice app and I use it quite often. It does offer access to your local iPhone files as well.
