That's for the old IT2005 software version.

I do not know, but I expect the server to be started automatically.  If
I am right, then you can stop it by getting root access in a terminal
and running /etc/init.d/dropbear-server stop, but it will be restarted
on the next reboot.

Those are for the IT2005 OS version, they won't work on OS2006 (the
filenames end in _arm.deb instead of _armel.deb).

Of course everyone knows that vim is the best text editor in the world. Anyone
who tells you differently is either wrong, lying, or criminally insane. (Or an
emacs user, in which case they are wrong, lying and criminally insane).
