Does it work also for PB611? would it turn off if it switches off?
Do you think next firmware would close this door to SSH or give more open platform?

It comes with an "app" for each of turning on and turning off the daemon from the Application tab. You have to run the app to start it, and it stays off if you shut down the machine. It automatically turns on the WiFi if it needs to, and if so, turns it off when you close the daemon. It doesn't need root privileges to install and run, and it doesn't give you root privileges when you log in via the SSH daemon. It runs entirely as the 'reader' user. It isn't automatically run when the machine boots up, because you would need root privileges to set that up. So, there really isn't any door to close by future firmware updates.

It's currently set up for PC->reader logins. I haven't set it up for connecting from the reader to the PC (can't remember why, but probably had to do with the default user not having a home directory, so no place to put user-specific configuration files).
