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 ...

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.
