    Hi everyone,

    Before I start, I want to say that I have read other threads in this forum about my issue, I was 100% able to ssh into my ipod wirelessly on firmware 2.2.1 on a computer running Debian Linux about a month ago. I was able to view all the files in the file manager, however I can't with 3.1.2

    Apps I have

    I recently upgraded to firmware 3.1.2, I did a blackra1n jailbreak, and I cannot mount my Ipod Touch wirelessly in linux through Debian. I go to Places-->Connect to Server and then enter the IP, the port (22), and then "root" for the username. When I hit connect, a folder appears on the desktop, the title of the folder is the IP of my ipod, but when I double click on it, nothing happens. I even try to open up a file browse and click on the folder from the sidebar where the "Places" are and it says Couldn't display "ssh://root@".

    If I go into the terminal and type
    ssh root@
    it then prompts me for my password
    I type in "alpine"
    and then I am in the Ipod, from the console I can view the files and directories fine.

    Anyone have any ideas as to why this is not working when I use Places-->Connect to Server? I do know that you have to get an app off cydia called afc2add for blackra1n to get ssh working, I did that but so far nothing has worked.
