    Ok theres a lot of things that could be the problem. Make sure your ipod is connected to the internet via wifi. Then consider using a different program to SSH into ipod, i prefer FileZilla because it works in school but you can use winscp too. And make sure the ipod is on. Hope I helped peace~

    If you can't access the internet then SSH won't work, so make sure you can browse the web.

    Make sure you have OpenSSH installed.

    Make sure you are typing in the correct IP address into your SSH program on your computer (make sure it's the dedicated iPod's IP) and make sure username is root and password is alpine, unless you changed it.

    If that doesnt work, you might as well back up your programs and reformat your iPod (it takes 15 minute to reformat and if you have your apps backed up it shouldn't be much of a loss. Sometimes reformatting is the easiest way out.
