Im trying to conntect to my iPhone from winscp...when i click connect i get the following:
Searching for host...
Connecting to host...
Using username 'ROOT'
(then i enter the password alpine like i saved when creating the connection)
HOW ANNOYING!!! I got the username ROOT and password alpine from a friend. It works fine for him!
Im running 2.1 firmware....i HAVE got SSH turned on in Bossprefs, i have re-installed openSSH in cydia...
dont know what other information you might need??
Any help would be appreciated!

Unix is case sensitive, are you entering "ROOT" or "root"? It must be root

2) make sure you have open ssh and SBsettings with ssh turned ON
3) make sure your computer and idevice are both connected to wifi
if it still isn't working, you got me.
you could try Ifunbox. It works on windows i don't know about macs.
Before you get that, go to rock and download afc2add.(not 100% sure but i believe you need hard reset to install it, so 3g ipod and 3gs iphone may have to run blackra1n again)
Then go download ifunbox. It doesn't install to your computer which is nice. Just unzip and run.(it does make temp folders/files when you use it, don't delete them, it will remove them on its own)
Ifunbox can do everything you need ssh wise (except change permissions on files, or atleast i have not found a way with this yet).
And about more ram, you mean for the Idevice? The only way is with Vram, which you can download a .plist file from the net, not sure how well that works.

hey, i have a problem.. ive downloaded the latest version of WinSCP.. i created a new login and typed in my IP ADRESS in ¨HOST¨... i typed in ¨root¨ in username and ¨alpine¨ in password..
the port number is at 22 and i dont have a private key file..
i save it renaming it whatever, and click login
it tells me to put in the password for ¨root¨ and i proceed to punch in ¨alpine¨... 1 second later its says ¨acess denied¨... i repeat to punch in the password and yet nothing...
i have no idea what the problem is, anything that can help me would be AWESOME!

getting the same problem, 3GS 3.1.2, mobile terminal on the iphone successfully logs in, but remoting in using putty or winscp both give access denied. Both are connecting via wifi adn I've tried setting a static ip, the key query comes up asking if I trust this device because the key has changed which tells me they are communicating, it appears that alpine/dottie are not the right pw. also tried mobile w/ alpine and dottie, could not login there either.
