    Firstly let me say I have no idea about this itouch technical jargon but I figured it out and am now posting a semi-guide to all of you who have no clue WTF this is all about

    Step 1] go to the WinSCP website and download Winscp + install it
    http://winscp.net/eng/download.php

    step 2] go to your ipod installer.app to download 2 apps. (Blaze Ultimate Free & OpenSSH

    > all packages > Blaze Ultimate Free
    > all packages > OpenSSH

    Step 3] Plug Ipod into computer

    Step 4] get ipod i.p. address [settings>Wi-Fi>clik on blue arrow next to your network

    Step 5] open Winscp - Input details
    Host name = Your IP address you just found
    Username = root
    Password = alpine

    SAVE to prevent you from having to input it all again

    Searching for host will take a long time in the beggining but it should connect eventually

    IF IT DOESNT

    Step 6] Open your router, and open port 22 for your ipods IP address, then if you have the kind of router i have allow your ipod ip address to access SSH server

    Now it should connect properly


    Good luck I hope it works for you!
