    try WinSCP and then make sure you're doing sftp to the correct IP address. Last but not least make u sre your iPods wifi is on and maybe try browsing in safari while its trying to connect

    Hello, i seem to be having the same problem, except i get the following error after typing in my username and password (root/alpine; IP is correct, i have made sure of this)

    Exit status 127. Cannot initialize SFTP protocol. Is the host running a SFTP server?

    This is the error i get when trying to connect via WINSCP. My ipod IS jailbroken, and i have edited files from CuteFTP before, but i received an error from that program as well. Does anyone know what the problem is?
