    hi
    so i jailbroke my ipod touch and installed the open ssh file.
    but my ftp client won't recognize my ipod.
    i tried several programs.
    ip adress, username:root, pw:alpine.
    but none of them can connect.
    i used to have a jailbroken 1.1.4 ipod and everything worked just fine.
    does anyone have an idea what i am doing wrong?
    maybe port?

    thanks in advance.

    hm port:22
    while i made this thread someone else made one with the exact same problem.
    thanks anyways.

    make sure the username is "root"
    and the password is "alpine"
    also check the port for "22" also reinstall openSSH, and check your IP address in settings...

    It took me 8 trys to connect the first time I installed openSSH, so keep trying if it doesn't work the first time

    hope that helps

    I tried that and all my settings are right. I have been trying all day.

    Usually when I turn on my iPod growl notifications says iPod Local found (which means it found the ssh connection) but its not doing that anymore so I think my iPod just isnt sending out a connection
