    Reset your router and make sure the ipod auto-lock is set to never.

    zloydemon.......Yes mate....i have the same issue.......worked fine first time (and a few times after) but now blank window for 15 - 20 secs then [network error:conection timed out]. Is there another windows app that you can use with open ssh?
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    I have tried everything....reset ipod, reset router, changed connection timeout to 45 secs in advanced options, ipod set to never lock, unistalled WinSCP and reinstalled it..........everthing!! but it still will not log on........ohh....and now it says [network error:connection refused]. Time to ditch this piece of sh#t and start looking for other alternatives.....lol
