    Now you can SSH to your iPhone via USB cable instead of using WiFi connection. (Windows only)

    Requirements

    * Jail-broken iPhone / iPod Touch
    * WinSCP (Download Here)
    * iTunnel (Download Here)


    On the iPhone

    1. Connect your iPhone to the internet (EDGE/3G or WiFi)
    2. Open Cyida in iPhone.
    3. Go to Networking.
    4. Select OpenSSH and install it.
    5. Wait for Cydia to download the package and complete the installation.


    On your PC


    1. Connect your iPhone to PC by USB cable
    2. Download iTunnel (Zip Format ~600KB)
    3. Once downloaded extract it somewhere
    4. Run “start_ssh_tunnel.cmd”
    5. Open WinSCP
    6. Set the parameters
    * Hostname: 127.0.0.1
    * Port Number: 22
    * User Name: root
    * Password: alpine
    * Protocol: SFTP

    7. Click on Login.
    8. Enjoy browsing iPhone file system!

    You should just use Total Commander on Windows instead with the t-PoT plug-in. much easier and it installs itself. plus you dont have to worry about network connections.
