    --------------- Looking to use this information/guide in your guide/site? ---------------
    As long as your not selling it, you provide the link to the guide when it's done, and I'm credited, feel free to include the information and images.

    *Notes*
    - Guy's enough with the PM's. Everything i know about this is posted on this thread.
    - Yes this is compatible with the new 2.0 firmware.
    - Some users are reporting (Jocko) that unblocking WinSCP, or making an exception in Windows Firewall will cure most of the problems with connecting.

    WinSCP is a program that allows you to view, edit, add, copy, or move the files from your computer to your iPod Touch, or vice versa.

    Alright i have been noticing threads being started over, and over again about how to connect to WinSCP. SO i decided to make a picture guide to try and get rid of these threads from starting again.

    0. Install "OpenSSH" from Installer or Cydia. This is a KEY step needed, as you have to have it installed for this to work!

    1. Go HERE , it downloads WinSCP 4.1.7, i saved it to my desktop.

    7. Hit "Install", It should go through the installing setup, mine was too fast to get a picture. So, "Completing The WinSCP Setup Wizard" should come up. I choose "Yes, restart the computer now" option. Which i recommend.

    8. Hit "Finish", your computer should now start rebooting. Let it reboot.

    9. After rebooting there is a icon on your desktop called "WinSCP" double-click/open it.
