    Ok, so I've tried SSHing into my iPod SOOO many times. I have followed careful instructions, meet all the requirements, and yet STILL fails. I use CuteFTP Pro. I followed "ipodtouchmaster"'s tutorial on YouTube. I can't get into it!

    Can someone PLEASE help?

    P.S. yes, I do have Services installed and yes SSH is ON!

    Everyone is going to ask the same things, so I'll go ahead and ask it:

    Make sure you have the following correct:

    -The IP address on CuteFTP should match your iPod's.
    -Make sure the username and password are correct.
    -Make sure you are on port 22.
    -Try rebooting the iPod.
    -Make sure your iPod and computer are connected to the same wireless network.
    -Renew your iPod's lease (in the iPod's WiFi settings)
    -Turn SSH off and back on.
    -Try recycling the router (unplug both modem and router, wait two minutes, plug in the modem, wait two minutes, plug in the router, wait 1 minute or until all lights are flashing correctly).
    -If you are running Windows, right click the WiFi connection and click repair.

    Would my problem probably be that I am on my neightbor's WiFi cause I don't have WiFi so they let me use theirs...is that my problem?

    Hmm....are both computers connected to their network? If so, this shouldn't be a problem.

    Is the signal very good? If not, the connection could go out randomly and screw up the SSH connection. The downside of using a neighbor's connection is that you can't recycle or fix the connection whenever you want.

    My computer is on a modem, not connected with my neightbor's network...And my iPod's WiFi is their network...

    I think I'll just have to get a job and get WiFi (though I'll only b 15 on Tuesday)

    There's your problem right there! You have to be on the same network as your iPod is. Your computer doesn't have WiFi built in?
