    Hi, i just wanted to know whether or not WINSCP or CuteFTP are suppose to be able to connect to the iPod Touch before you jalibreak it, or does it only connect after the Touch has been jailbreaked.

    I just wanted to check ahead to see if the applications that i needed to use worked first, but it seems that the network keeps refusing to let me connect.
    Is it because my Touch isnt jailbreaked yet that i cant connect to it with WINSCP or CuteFTP, or is there another problem?

    Dont wanna try jailbreaking without knowing this fact.

    I would be very grateful to any helpful responses. Thank you!

    You only need WinSCP or CuteFTP to add/edit stuff on your Touch. Jailbreak does not need these apps.

    The reason you can't connect before you jailbreak, is because when you jailbreak you install ssh, and sftp. Which allows you to access you're ipod via winSCP with sftp settings (port 22).
