    Can anyone recommend a good app that provides console (command line) access? As a network admin, I do a lot of work from the command line and would LOVE to use my nicely jailbroken iPad for such things. So far I have only located one aged app in Cydia, and it doesn't work. :(

    The only command line interface tweak available is Mobile Terminal (free in Cydia).

    The older version that was available in Cydia, v364.1-10, was old and did not work on iOS 5. The newer version, v520-1, was available to install once you found it on the web with a search and installed it manually with SSH or iFile.

    The good news is that, just a couple of days ago, Cydia was [finally!] updated and you can now easily get an updated version of Mobile Terminal (v520-2). Just go to Cydia and search for it; then, it's a normal download from Cydia. This works fine on my iPad3 running iOS 5.1.1.

    Again, this is the only tweak I know of for this purpose.

    iSSH from the official App store is awesome. That's what I use, and no need for a jailbreak (unless you also want to control the device from the command line) :)

    Veency from Cydia to allow iPad to be controlled.
