I am using Android ICS x86 build for debug purposes in VMware Workstation, but I can't find any ssh server, so how can I install ssh server on it? I've tried SSHDroid, Dropbear SSH and some others - all they doesn't work, because they request ARM architecture.

  • You are likely going to need OpenSSH, ported to ICS x86. Someone may already have tried this. See: openssh.org – david6 Nov 10 '12 at 10:27
  • Dropbear SSH is FOSS. You should be able to generate a IA32 binary from the source and run it under android-x86. – Flow Sep 21 '13 at 12:46

You can have a look at Servers Ultimate on Play. The SSH server itself works on all devices and command line works on ARM and x86.


  • Thanks! Servers Ultimate is the only SSH server that works for me on Android x86 emulator – Alfishe Feb 20 '15 at 15:37
  • Not working on my Android 5.1. Possibly due to 64-bit platform. – Sopalajo de Arrierez Sep 15 '15 at 18:44
