No. These applications allow you to SSH into other machines, not your iPhone. Unless it is jailbroken, the iPhone's filesystem is unaccessible to the user.

it just seems possible. does anyone know what the difference is that makes it possible on jb only?
The regular iPhone is locked down, while the jailbroken one allows access to the iPhone's file system. No JB, no access. SSH is just a tool used for many devices, computers. etc. to connect with each other. It has no relation to the iPhone. You wouldn't get that from the app store.
