    I want to install Open SSH on my Jailbroken iPad, but sbsettings hasn't been updated to work with the new Jailbreak yet. With sbsettings, I can toggle SSH on and off. When I am on a wifi netowrk that is not my own, I like to turn of SSH for security purposes. YES, I changed the "root" and "mobile" passwords, but see no need to announce to the world that a file system is avaible. How can I disable the SSH access without sbsettings. I suspect it is something as simple as shutting a port down with a text file edit, but with my last Jailbreak, I couldn't figure this out.

    Please advise.

    Thanks

    If you've changed the password, there's no need to toggle SSH on and off since it does not drain your battery at all. Unless someone's channeling through an SSH client looking for you specifically, and assuming there aren't another few hundred iPhones on the network as well, they won't have the access to your device. If you must have the toggle, you can try Toggle SSH from the BigBoss repo. It hasn't been updated since iOS 2 I believe, but it worked when I first installed it after using winocm's OpenSn0w jailbreak.
