How do I turn off OpenSSH on the iPad?
by default ssh is on after a reboot.
ssh to your ipad from a computer (putty for windows or terminal for mac) or directly from the ipad. I'm using issh from the appstore.
under root account, just type:
launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemon/com.... (forgot the end but if you use the tab completion only one choice will come up)
and press enter. the current ssh session will stay alive but ssh is turned off.
and to restart it. obviously you have to do it from the ipad it is the same command with "load" instead of "unload"
There is no reason to turn off ssh. It doesn't consume any extra RAM/power/battery. It just runs as a very small daemon. In fact, if you're running OS X or Linux, it has been running on your system the whole time.
Install SB settings and turn it on or off with the toggle.
But it's insecure if you use it in wild wifi network Please Register or Log in to view images better change root password
And no, it surly consume some amount of RAM (there no software that don't consume RAM Please Register or Log in to view images), as for power/battery it sould not take power when it's idle

Has the location services issue been fixed yet? Is there anything you can do?
If you turn off OpenSSH using SBSettings (or some other toggle), does Location Services work? Is the "OpenSSH kills Location Services" issue something that takes effect simply while OpenSSH is installed?
Take it from this, the amount of RAM it uses is in the low kilobytes, negligible at best.
I'd like to know as well
