    When I ssh into my iPhone, does autolock HAVE to be disabled? I mean if autolock isn't disabled, is there a chance my iPhone would be hurt in any way? I'm asking because up until now, autolock has always been on on my iPhone when I have SSH'ed into it. And I have not run into problems, except sometimes Winscp has timed out on certain operations (like replacing files), and logging in (at times). Has this been happening because autolock has been "on" on my iPhone, or could this be coincidence? Please Help. Thank you!

    Yea? Or else every time it locks you will lose connection?

    Actually when it locks I don't lose connection. The session just continues without problems when it's locked.

    The session continues until you try to copy files or move between iPhone folders. You will then be asked to log back in.

    if you use a wired form of SSH, like Diskaid, you can keep your device locked.

    If it's connected to your computer or any power source, then your iPod will stay connected.

    you can use keep awake so that the connection doesn't time out when you lock it

    It won't hurt anything if you don't, it's just annoying when it locks n you're still tryin to transfer files. I use the Keep Awake toggle with SBSettings to keep the wifi signal active when I'm SSHing.
