    Hey i was just wondering, is it possible to change your open ssh password to something other than alpine to make it more secure because with everyone having the same password that is a big security issue...

    You really think someone is going to wait until your iPod is on the network, then find out your iPod's IP, then SSH into it and screw with your stuff?

    Most people who don't have a Jailbroken iPod don't even know how to SSH.

    Yes, the command is "passwd" and it's highly recommended that you change your password.
