I found it helpful to ssh into the Android phone to debug some stuff when setting it up.

Follow these steps:

Open Termux on your Android phone
Install OpenSSH:

pkg upgrade
pkg install openssh

Set up a password:


Find your username by running this in Termux:


Save this value for later. Might look like u0_a254
Find the host by running this in Termux:


Look for something like inet addr: Save this value for later.
Start the ssh server on Termux:


Verify that it’s running with:

logcat -s 'ssh:*'

You should see something like “Server listening on port 8022”
On your computer, SSH into your machine on port 8022 (default port):

ssh @ -p8022

Type in your password and viola! You’re accessing Termux from your computer.
