ORF Service and Remote Connections

The ORF Service cannot be controlled when connecting remotely, as the service is required to run for the remote connection: stopping or restarting it would close the connection, resulting in a "I closed myself out and the key is inside" situation. To avoid this, the configuration can only be saved remotely, which actually reinitializes the service with the new settings without restarting it.
