To application that I decided to use to help get my SSH running on as quickly as possible was SSHDroid. This is an excellent application that I would highly recommend. The steps in setting up SSH access where:
- Install SSHDroid and launch application
- Change the password from its default which is "admin"
- Install OpenSSH on your linux computer
- run ssh root@<ip-address of android phone>
- Enter password when requested
Now I have the command line of the android phone, I downloaded iperf and extracted the contains of the .tar.gz file to the SD card. The next stage in my plan was to use ./configure then make then make install as per usual.
But as ever, thing are never that straight forward.
- on doing ./configure, I get permission denied
- on doing sudo ./configure, I get sudo: not found
- on doing echo $USER, I get root
- on doing ls -l | grep configure, I get ---xrwxr-x
I've managed to deal with the "Permission Denied" error despite having root access and the correct permission by prefixing ./configure with sh. This then fails to compile due to the lack of a C++ compiler
