It's been a long while since I installed it, but I just looked and it seems it comes from Ste Packaging. So yes, maybe try ensuring your Installer version doesn't need updating and then maybe remove and re-add that source ...

OpenSSH does not have an icon that shows on your home screen. You might want to look at an app like 'Services' which lets you toggle SSH on and off very easily, as having it on continually is a battery drain ...

You can download apps into your phone. But ssh is a real battery drainer. You can turn it off and on if you have Netservices.

Don't worry if you have OpenSSH...

The creator of this particular app has creating something similar to what MacBooks have which activates SSH only when needed. It doens't have the battery drain concerns that other apps do.

This is from Ste's site:
QUESTION: Will this kill my battery?

ANSWER: No. Unlike other ssh packages for the iPhone, this package does not have a constantly running daemon. It is simply added to the list of connections that the inetd daemon (which always runs on your iPhone) listens for. If it sees you trying to connect, it will start up sshd to handle it. When you disconnect, the sshd process goes away. This is exactly how it runs on Apple laptops. So, no, this package will not kill your battery if left turned on because, in truth, there is nothing actually running. My package is the only one that can claim this, to the best of my knowledge.

I thought you used installer to download apps, thats what I have been using?

So I guess the SHH app is just a program that runs in the background to help install a program when you select it in installer?
