The unhacked kindle has /usr/sbin/ defined in PATH, and /usr/sbin/ssh hardlinked to /usr/sbin/dropbearmulti
works fine for me when run at a kindle command prompt when Wi-Fi is on. I successfully connected to my web hosting service on the "interwebs". ;-)
SSH does not go through the 3G amazon proxy without suitable "naughty bits" though (and please do NOT risk getting "experimental" free 3G shut down for all of us).
You *could* install a command shell CGI script on a remote web server and do proxied SSH (embedded in a web page) from there using the kindle web browser. I run "Shell In A Box" on my Linux PC at home, but 3G access to it using HTTPS port 443 from a kindle web browser is rather twitchy. Running "screen" would be a good way to resume an SSH session.
I have considered running Luigi's Console (web browser version) on my Linux PC instead of "Shell In A Box" due to its simplicity. I will report back when I get around to it RSN ("Real Soon Now")... ;-)
