    Okay, this is probobly a stupid questin, but i cant seem to find the answer.

    So, FTP is a file transfer protocol. fair enough. But what do you do with it?
    And what are the best FTPs availible for the touch?

    Say, Im making my own wallpapers, I need a FTP to get them onto my iPod correct>?

    Thanks.

    when you attempt to login just make sure you have the protocol set to SFTP and not FTP

    If you want to make your own wallpapers remember to change to .png and resize to 320x480 (something like that) Then drag and drop to /private/var/root/Library/Wallpaper in WinSCP and change properties to 755.
    Or you can sync to photos and it'll automatically do it for you.
