    Default WinSCP and 2.0.2
    Has anyone else had difficulty using WinSCP with the new 2.0.2 jailbroken firmware?

    I updated to the latest version of WinSCP, confirmed my wifi address, and made sure that SSH was turned on in BossPrefs, but I keep getting the "network connection refused" error.

    In BossPrefs , set SSH on always on reboot and then turn SSH to ON.
    Then just reboot your iphone and check again that SSH is ON in BossPrefs and try connecting it with WinSCP...it shud connect !!!

    I'll try that, although I've never had to reboot before...

    EDIT: I'll be damned - rebooting worked. Thanks!

    same issue.
    never needed bossprefs before, is this something they happened to change with 2.0.2?

    edit:

    tried rebooting, bossprefs shows ssh... on and i get the same error
    is it still root for username and alpine as pass?

    haven't had trouble logging onto winscp at home since 2.0.2, but I have been away this weekend and could not log on using a hotel wifi. Couldn't use iPhone tunnel either. Figure I'll try at home probably had to do with the web login wifi.
