    Hey guys
    I am pretty tech savvy so I am a little stuck as to why my ipod won't connect to cuteftp
    Now I have restored twice and followed the instructions out their to a T

    I am in jailbroken 1.1.2 with bsd subsystems and openssh installed, services installed making sure ssh is on and that ipod doesn't automatically go into sleep

    I go into cuteftp, new sftp connection, enter in the ip addy of ipod, username is root password is the default (alpine), port 22

    I have tried restoring to factory settings and redoing the whole process and increasing the connection timeout time but I always get this error

    1) Verify that the destination IP address is correct.
    2) Increase the connection timeout threshold under Global Settings | Connection.
    3) Switch to the opposite data connection type (PASV or PORT) under Site Settings | Type tab.
    4) Verify that the problem is not local by trying to connect to an alternate server.
    5) If a server name was used, verify it resolves to the correct address.
    6) If using a local server table for server name resolution, check to see that it doesn't resolve to an obsolete address.
    7) Try pinging the address.
    8) If you are using a router, verify the router is up and running (check by pinging it and then ping an address outside of the router).
    9) Do a traceroute to the destination to verify all routers along the connection path are operational.
    10) Verify that your subnet mask is setup properly.
    11) Verify that your local software or hardware firewall is not blocking outbound connections originating from CuteFTP.
    12) Verify that your anti-virus software is not at fault (try disabling it).

    I am behind a linksys router, could that have something to do with it?
    Help please and thank you!

    PS

    I know there are alternatives to Cuteftp and I have gotten total commander to work however I am unable to change permissions...even with squid and finder I am unable to change permissions within the ipod, not sure why but tapping furiously at the permissions section does not let me edit it whatsoever, the only thing I have been able to edit is the filename

    thanks again

    Can you tell us what's the IP address of your iPod and your PC?

    Why did you need to post this thread twice?

    Check the other one, I gave you a possible solution.

    No wonder you can't connect to your iPod. Both devices are on different segments.

    If you are connected on the same WiFi, you will normally get your PC to have an IP address like this 192.168.1.xxx
