Interesting approach, thanks for the information. However, I doubt it that
everybody will feel comfortable with the idea of having to jailbreak their
devices. Speaking for myself, I don't have a problem with it, though.

Thanks a mil, will try this out as well. We are using iPads where I work
as a business tool, and I was looking for a way to remotely manage them.
Running SSHD on them would help a lot, so IMHO this is valuable info.
