Plug in for Tasker and Locale which allows execution of commands on a remote machine via an SSH connection.

Supports password authentication and shared key authentication using openSSH dsa or rsa keys.

Supports variable substitution so you can use your tasker variables in your commands.

Allows access to the output of your command via tasker variable.


find it under plugins/ssh command.
input the ip or hostname of the remote machine (and port if necessary), your user name on the remote machine and either a password or select your local private key file. choose the correct authentication method.
The plugin will remember these details for any other tasks you create to run commands on the remote machine,

Enter the command you want to run on the remote machine and then you can use tasker to run them via button, shortcut, menu, condition or any of taskers many other options.

At the moment both rsa and dsa keyfiles are supported (i.e. keys generated by ssh-keygen or connectbot), To use keys generated in putty (puttygen) use the "export as openssh" option from the menu to obtain a key in the correct format.

Whats new

    Local variable for output doesn't work for some people so output is now returned to global tasker variable %SSH_OUT

It works like a sharm The only plugin that has worked with tasker robustly, even with sudo.

Matt Melling

Global config == :( Usable but useless for me since I need to connect to multiple machines and it uses a global config. Will switch back to connectbot.

Reiner Traubensaft

Ok The Plugin is working but supports only a single Ssh target host. I moved to "Ssh Tasker Plugin" which doesn't have this restriction.

Daniel Hitchcock

Cannot connect externally Tried run a command while out and about using my dyndns address and a forwarded port. Would not let me connect although other SSH clients will.. Connects fine while within my network. Also needs multiple hosts to become really useful! Keep up the good work dev!

Eric Eric

Works great The SSH_OUT variable displays the previous script output so I have to put sleep in. Don't see a way to have it wait to for the last one to finish. Other than that perfect.

Bo Wells

Works well with Tasker I was having a problem getting ConnectBot to reliably work with Tasker so I gave this a try. It worked perfectly the first time. It would be much more useful if it had a keygen utility and supported multiple hosts but for now it does the job I needed it to do.

Keith Brandenburg

Ehh.. Its good and works but need the configuration to not be global or at least to allow tasker variables to be used in the configuration.. do that and itll be a 5 star from me.. Dunno any you would have made something like this work this way..

Alex ZaBiC

Works well It does the thing. It does have global configuration for the server but it`s ok with me!

Mark Adamson

Neat, but not for me... This is a well put together plugin, unfortunately I can't see a way to authenticate with a keyfile and passphrase, which is what I need :(

Michal Balaz

Ok but Its ok but please add multiple machine.

Alex Bartiş

Doesn't work anymore Stopped working for a couple of months, with newer versions of tasked.

Devin Buhl

Pretty cool, but lacks a few features. There is a global configuration on the host your are connecting to, meaning you can only connect to 1 server. Lastly, I always get a plug in error when running tasks even thou the ssh command executes correctly. For now, I have disabled notifications for this app. Running CM11 on my d2spr

Rob Petti

Desperately needs multiple server support.

Teemu Ojansivu

Stopped working after latest Tasker update.

Jordy Vision

Works great! But really needs multiple hosts. Also some variable integration would be nice. Edit: Variables should work, so I'll try that again.

Davide Nastri

Easy and perfectly working Wow! The dev was so kind to listen and add a log of executed command result :D This means maybe I can pray to have multiple hosts for xmas? :)

Bill W

Works but limited This works and is easy to use but is limited to connecting to a single host. If you create a task to connect to a second IP address, it will change your existing tasks to the IP in your new task. I'm using this to control a raspberry pi for home automation. I just wish I could control more than one.

Martin Hennessy

Great developer input Great app which the dev helped me to get configured over email really quickly. Recommended tasker plugin!

Achilleas Portarinos

Very useful This plugin is very useful and easy to use. It helped me control the power of my samsung tv via the cec hdmi interface of my raspberry pi. Highly recommended! And the developer is very fast in regard to support.

Aliaksandr M

+ Please add the ability to save output of the command in Tasker variable.

Nathan Dick

Doesn't connect Doesn't work. Will purchase again after fixed.

Terry McCall

Works great, but a slight bug Been using this for years to write Tasker variables to files on my server. One recent bug I've had though, is that even though commands run successfully, I get a notification saying that the app doesn't have Tasker permissions (3rd party accessibility is enabled in Tasker). Kinda just came out of nowhere.
