    Hi, I'm having problem with accessing my ipod through SSH / SFTP (Putty and Winscp), the connection window just closes immediately after entering the password.

    putty's log says the following:
    login as: root
    root@'s password:

    SSH is enabled both in Service and via the SSH icon.

    I haven't done anything directly to SSH, but I was having some problem moving the apps to remove space limitation after upgrading to 1.1.2, and tried moving some files out manually (but it was that I just moved and restarted to see if it worked when I got the error, so it was probably unrelated to the apps move?).

    I still have access to the files via ibrickr and Finder, is there anyway I can fix this?
