    I've had some (a lot) of problems with my iPod recently. I jailbroke with ZiPhone and it worked fine for a while. Then, I started getting a lot of "Main Script Execution Failed" errors and restored my iPod. However, before and after the restore, I could not connect to my iPod with WinSCP. It seems as though, after I restored it and then rejailbroke it, BSD subsystems and OpenSSH are both already installed. Whenever I try to connect, I get an error message reading:

    "Server Unexpectedly Closed the Network Connection."

    Thats everything that is reported. I'd really like to get this working so I can reinstall installer (it keeps crashing when it gets to the "installing" part of adding an app, and thus I can't get terminal on my iPod).

    I'm running windows vista x86
    Core2 Duo T5250
    2 gigs of ram

    16 gig iPod touch running 1.1.3 jailbroken.

    It might also be important to note that for the first hour or so with the restored iPod, I successfully installed the 1.1.3 apps pack, iSlsk, iPlot, SynchStep, Sketches, and MobileScrobbler. It would REALLY be nice to get SSH working, so I can finally use iSlsk (there's currently a FirewireGUID error with it).

    Have you installed BossPrefs to make sure SSH is on and have you reset your router?
