Android out of the box disables connecting to ad-hoc networks. I wonder if UT does the same via a driver inheritance?
What issues do you have with ssh?"
Hey handaxe, same from TMO?
From my research Android can go ad-hoc when rooted, in fact my nexus associates in ad-hoc mode with the N900, just that grabbing an IP address fails. Not sure if the tablet uses dhclient, but that fails when I try it in shell.
I got ssh working askubuntu.com/questions/348714/how-can-i-access-my-ubuntu-phone-over-ssh but it is using public key verification, I go through wipes so often and have such low security needs a password is enough and I hate having to worry about key management, I assume a machine will be compromised and just use crypto on private data. Getting the tablet moved to password verification is probably what I need to bootstrap myself into the next step. There is no good gedit like app and I cant very well VI without having Esc, and Ctrl keys.
As an aside if you know how to get a VNC server running, I had been hoping to use the tablet as a big screen for N900/Maemo apps, especially GPS until the Ubuntu Touch selection expands.
