I have a network of 3 PC's in my house: two are desktop PC's that are hard-wired to the router, the other being a netbook that is wireless. I also have 3 Android tablets that are wireless. I want to use a tablet to connect to my Ubuntu PC to perform terminal commands (the other PC's are Windows-based, so they're irrelevant).

I have tried TeamViewer, PocketCloud, and Splashtop, but all of these require things to be installed on my local machine, and I would like to avoid that if at all possible. I have searched Google for SSH, but I am not quite adept enough to figure out how to use it.

I would ssh into the machine via it's local ip, like this. It's best to specify username as well. Then you will simply be prompted for a password.

ssh [email protected] 

You can install openssh-server by typing:

sudo apt-get install openssh-server

You need an SSH client on the android device. So you can handle the protocols needed. Use ifconfig to find your local ip on the host computer.
