Thread: Is there a way to turn off SSH? (cydia not installer)

    Default Is there a way to turn off SSH? (cydia not installer)
    Hello people
    Just a few hours ago I upgraded my iPhone with the 2.0 firmware.
    Since Cydia is used I was wondering if there is a tool like "services" in installer to turn off ssh so I can conserve battery.
    Many thanks in advance!

    Any ideas people?

    Cannot seem to find that on Cydia. Do not think that has been ported to 2.0 yet.

    I never read your full post.

    If you're on 2.0 then you have to hang around like an old man's hand

    I read on another message board that you can download the "Terminal" in cydia and run these commands:

    su root, then :
    start : launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.openssh.sshd.plist
    stop : launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.openssh.sshd.plist

    I haven't upgraded to 2.0 yet so I haven't tried myself, but they look like they'd work.

    does ssh really eat up battery power?

    I'm quite sure it does. A few months ago when I first installed 1.1.4 and forgot to install services my battery lasted for a day and I wasn't using it a lot. After installing the services program I reverted back to the normal for my use 2.5 days.

    Default Turn off SSH
    Thanks for the info.

    How about turning off SSH for security reasons? for unauthorized remote access. Unless it is possible to change the default password which everyone knows.

    Edit: Never mind. I found the way to change the SSH password. And SSH will no longer eat your battery if you're not using it.

    the passwd command works with cydia. It was the bsd version that was broken. So yes you can use either terminal or putty for example to change both the root and mobile passwords.
