    Hi,
    I installed SBSettings and OpenSSH, every time I reboot mine iPhone SSH is switch ON.

    Is there a possible way to set it OFF as default and when I need it, i would switch it ON.

    Thanks.

    it's a safety net, you should leave 'default on' enabled.

    Never knew SSH was a security net. If something went horribly wrong with my iP4 I don't think I'd know exactly where to go to fix the problem within the 2 or so minute time frame you have to fix the issue before being booted out of the system.

    But it might come in handy someday....thanks for the info everyone!

    Most of the time when I've seen it be useful is when you install a bad cydia package and the phone gets stuck in a loop where Springboard won't start up. At this point you would basically have two options. The first would be restore. The second would be to SSH in and use dpkg to remove the bad package. Clearly I know which one I would choose.

    It's just a command you would use in terminal, winscp or some other client. Look for the full command line entry elsewhere in this forum or perhaps someone will post it here. My notes are at home right now.
