Do u guys think that's the problem? When it is connecting, a pop-up shows up saying that it needs a key or somethin like that, n then it asks me for a password: it says root as username and then blank for password. I went ahead n typed alpine, n the pop-up just comes back. does anybody have an idea of what this is. My connection/network is firewalled/locked Oh, same thing happens when I try to connect it to WinSCP!
