    Okay, Ive spent like 2 months trying different methods and whatnot to get my freaking iPod to connect to WinSCP. I gave up on that and tried FileZilla. I think the problem is just my iPod, because my computer seems to work fine with these programs, but my iPod won't. Every time I try to connect to WinSCP or FileZilla I get the "Error:Connection Timed Out" message. Yes, I set the host to my i.p. address, yes I put the username as "root" and the password as "alpine", yes I have the auto lock set to never and, yes, I have OpenSSH installed on my iPod. What am I doing wrong?! Help would be greatly appreciated. Please....

    Is it something to do with having the 3.0 update?

    You have to make your your ipod isn't in lock mode. You have to unlock it and leave it like that the whole time while in WinScp.

    I mean unlock as in "Slide to unlock" not iphone unlock
