Ubuntu Remote Control is an android app. I want to use it to control my ubuntu desktop. It works on ssh. I'm a newbie and don't know how to setup. Please help.
I know that this is not the place where to make Android Recommendations but the original question is about an Android APP.
If you wish to SSH your Computer, which is indeed different than "Remote control" which can be achieved by a VNC/Teamviewer Application in a tablet, you may wish to give a chance to JuiceSSH.
JuiceSSH Free Version includes the next features:
I use it for the day-to-day administration of a self hosted server and it is really useful, you feel like being inside of an Ubuntu Terminal.
Some screenshot from my sessions (documented in my blog) are placed here to illustrate some tasks.
JuiceSSH and irssi for connections to IRC servers/channels.
JuiceSSH installing emacs in the server, which can also be used via JuiceSSH
ASCII based representation of an image in the server, really useful in order to see what is the picture.
The usage of JuiceSSH is really simple. You create the profiles which will include the username and password, then create the servers and use both in conjunction in order to make a connection, which means that if you admin more than one server, the same profile may be applied to many of them.
Remember to make the server reachable via LAN/WAN by allowing the Firewall the connections via port 22 in your favorite Firewall application. I use Firestarter in Ubuntu 12.04 and it does an awesome work so far. For external connections remember to forward the port 22 to the proper IP/Device where appropriate.
If you need further support or this answer doesn't fit your needs don't hesitate to drop a comment.
P.S. When SSH'ing a server, Midnight Commander and its included mcEdit text editor will be your best friends. Just a suggestion. :D
Try this instead https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.allinoneremote It looks much simpler
