    I want to install the ssh command on my iPhone 4 running iOS 6 so I can use ssh in MobileTerminal to connect to my Mac. I have it on my iPhone 1, but now I can't find it on my freshly-jailbroken iPhone 4. What is the package called?

    Note: This is NOT about OpenSSH. Thanks to OpenSSH, I can't find the solution on Google because all I get is results about OpenSSH tutorials. I want to be able to connect to SSH hosts FROM my iPhone.

    EDIT: Thanks!

    Install MobileTerminal and OpenSSH, you need both.
    Now you can use the ssh username@ipadress command in your mobile terminal.

    If its ONLY SSH you want. I might suggest a few dollar app in the AppStore. As they have much better keyboard. If you want to do more than SSH to another host, then they wont do you good.

    Ah, so this IS included in OpenSSH. I thought there was another package for the client-side SSH on iOS.

    Well, in that case, I'll have to wait for OpenSSH to be updated for iOS 6. The current version doesn't work.

    There are as I said free and paid (which are better I've tried) versions of SSH-client on the AppStore.. I'll browse and see if I can find one I can recommend.

    Of course I prefer OpenSSH from Cydia, but the using the standard iOS keyboard without any adjustments for a posix terminal is not so pleasant.

    I have one of those apps, but I much prefer it to be in MobileTerminal just to keep all of my command line stuff in one place and to have the ssh command really installed on the system.

    Well there should be a way to install SSH on iOS6. Before Cydia came with the iOS6 jailbreak, you got SSH instead. If OpenSSH isn't eligible for install, there should be some way to get functioning binaries to the correct folders.
