SSH For Series 60 At Last!



While trying to find the port of PuTTY for the Nokia Communicator, I stumbled on excellent news from a few days ago: PuTTY for Symbian OS released a port of Putty for Series 60!

Note that this release is marked as beta, so if you’ve never crashed your phone before or if the idea of crashing you phone scares you, wait for a final release.  I wasn’t able to connect to anything, but I’ll try again later when I’m in a more GPRS-rich area.

Even though the 9290 lacks GPRS, I’ve found that it is quite useful as an SSH terminal.  The jury is still out on the usefulness of SSH on something with a whacky keypad like the 3650, but we will see.
