    Just got my G1 today. Downloaded a few apps, Nice!

    One of the apps I have is Pterminal. Unfortunately except for ls and a few other simple commands I cannot get it to do anything useful.

    I was hoping for ifconfig or another useful network command like ipconfig. I'd like to be able to connect to a wireless LAN and do some basic troubleshooting when I need to.

    I'm interested in TCP commands ( Ping is there! ) as well as RDP, VPN and VNC.

    Anyone else useing their G1 on a LAN?

    I've been watching some of the dev/hacking forums and I don't think there is a good, proper shell available anywhere yet.

    Have you found the SSH client that's up on the app store yet? It's called ConnectBot.

    ^^^ Thanks. Found it.

    I'm actually going to do some searching around on Android programming since there has to be a list of networking commands available.

    OK so here is what I have so far that works.

    There are lists of shell commands around for the android OS. However for the purpose of troubleshooting networking the two that I am using are:

    netcfg - used to show the IP of the phone.

    netstat - used to show what the phone is connected to.

    ping is also there but I have yet to get the syntax correct for a request to work.

    :) Feel free to add to the list.
