    Hi,

    Have you installed Community Sources and then OpenSSH?

    And are you connecting on port 22?

    Try them and if it still doesn't work let me know.

    Not trying to ask a stupid question, but you guys are using the ip from your ipod?

    Logging in as root and using the correct password (default is "alpine" but you can change it)?

    Also using SFTP and not just FTP?

    How are you guys trying to connect?

    Are you using a SSH2 or SFTP client?

    Do you know the IP address of the wireless connection on your Ipod?

    From a Linux command line you can SSH like so :

    ssh root@192.168.1.2 (or whatever your IP is), enter your password and you're in.

    Are you using windows? (Putty)

    Are you trying to connect with an FTP application?

    Again *HOW* are you trying to connect?

    I'm trying to connect using SFTP (cyberduck) through OSX
    I do know the IP address of my IPOD. Should I type "ssh" at the beginning of the IP address?

    I'm not familiar with OSX or Cyberduck. Does cyberduck give you an error message? Does it just time out?

    Secure keys are exchanged between a client and server when connecting via SSH/SFTP. If you restore your Ipod it may generate a new key and not allow your client to connect to it any longer. This has happened to me and I've had to manually remove the key in Linux before it would connect again.

    Putting SSH before you IP won't help.

    Can you try connecting to it from another computer? That would remove the possibility of a key-verification issue.

    Ensure you're connecting via SFTP or SSH2.

    I'm sorry I can't be more helpful coming from a Linux background. If Mac OSX is unix-based, bring up a command line and type :

    ssh root@192.168.1.2 (exchange 192.168.1.2 for your ipod's ip address)

    What are the results?

    do i type that in the terminal? cause nothing happens when i do.

    in cyberduck it brings up the message: Error: Connection failed
    sftp://root@my.ip.address:22
    the connect () operation on the socket timed out.

    i've tried connected through my laptop with the exact same results.
