    Hi Guys,
    I've succesfully jailbroken my iPod and I got many custom apps on it now, fixed summerboard over WinSCP and so on, but suddenly my iPod refuses the connection whenever I try to connect to it with WinSCP!
    I get the Error "Cannot initialize SFTP protocol. Is the host running a SFTP server?"
    Please help me

    Ahh I'm in again, installed OpenSSH and suddenly it works! (Dunno whether there is any connection between, because it worked without OpenSSH all the time :|)

    go into settings and wifi and click on the blue arrow next to the network you are connected to. Where there a three options at the top choose static and change the last number to a 3 or for. e.g. xxx.xxx.x.3 this should help being able to connect. Also make sure you have open ssh installed.

    But when you are not using ftp or ssh either uninstall openssh or turn it of by using 'services' (found in installer) or your battery life will drop a lot.
