    Hey I'vve had my ipod jailbroken for a month now and never instealled OpenSSH but all my apps and everything are running perfectly as of now, do i need to install OpenSSH for soem reason still or am i fine without it? I am able to login to putty and WinSCP perfectly now so is there any reason i should install it, what does it do?

    From my understanding, the jailbreak that came out a month ago installed dropbear, another SSH client. OpenSSH and dropbear basically do the same thing, so you won't need OpenSSH.

    On that note, does anyone know which one is better?

    OpenSSH is better, because it's off-turnable, and it does support more commands.
