    Before you say it i know another touch SFTP issue.

    I was having issues with WINSCP so i decided (After a few issues) to restore and jail break my touch and now i am running a basic jailbroken touch 1.1.2

    I have only installed BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH

    I then open WINSCP and put in the touch's IP address and wait to be asked the user name and password (I will save the settings once they work) but i always get a time out message. I have set WINSCP to timout at 100 seconds but still i get this message.

    Any help or thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Yes this happens to me many times, but Sometimes I fix it by Restarting my computer and my Ipod.
    When you start WinSCP MAKE SURE that your Ipod is connected to your computer, with anything, even the sync cable(The normal white one).
    Goodluck

    There's no need for a physical connection...

    I'd double check to make sure all of the information is right, and it is set to SSH

    Username: root
    Password: alpine (unless you changed it)
    Port: 22
    IP Address: Go to settings> Wifi> the blue arrow next to your network

    I always have to have it connected, or if not it never works when its not for me. Actually as soon as I Disconnect it, it says the server unexpectedly when out.
    I dunno....

    EDIT: To turn SSH on you should have an application on your Ipod when you Jailbroke it, this app is called SSH when you go in there you can turn SSH ON or OFF
    And yea make sure you have SSH on ON or Open or watever or else you cant acces your Ipod

    no need for a physical connection. I can ssh into my Ipod from another room without a problem.

    on a side note, I ssh'ed into my laptop with the ipod as well.

    install the terminal program, bsd tools, and openssh.

    Type:

    SSH your.computer.ip.address

    You must be running an ssh client on your computer. Macs have it built in.
