    Ok had been connecting to my touch with WINSCP all week. This morning I tried and it timed out ?

    I checked if my Ip address and it had changed on my touch

    so i went to my
    settings/wi fi/arrow to right of my connection andfound the new IP
    change the WINSCP to current and connected no problem

    1. so if you are trying to connect via WINSCP and you get TIMED OUT
    "check your Ip address is correct if not correct it"

    1. open WINSCP
    2. click "new" in top right
    3. first line " host name " input new or corrected IP address
    4. username: root
    5. password: alpine > unless you have previous changed it in your SSH program
    6. save settings
    7. LOGIN


    2. If you get CONNECTION REFUSED "make sure SSH is turned on"
    it is suggested to turn off when not in use to save battery life


    This may or may not be new and apologize if some one has already posted something similiar.

    Just thought i'd post it as it just happened to me this morning.

    the reason you get the time out error is because you already have an ssh porgram on your computer

    So if you have an ssh on your desktop and try to put another ssh porgram on your laptop it wouldnt work.
