    Default SSH, iPhoneTunnel not working on iBook
    Wondering if anyone can help with this problem.

    I have set up my MacBook to ssh to my iPhone over USB (for tethering purposes) using iPhoneTunnel and Proxifier. It worked like a charm from the very first try.

    Now I have tried exactly the same thing with my wife's iPhone on her iBook, and it doesn't work at all. When I choose "tethering" in iPhoneTunnel, it executes the ssh command in the terminal:

    ssh -ND 9999 -p 9876 [email protected]

    but whereas on my MacBook I get a request for a password, on the iBook, it just hangs there, no request for password, no error message. If I ctrl-C out of the ssh, I can ping 127.0.0.1 no problem.

    I am pretty sure the problem is in the iBook, not the iPhone, as I can easily tether either iPhone to my MacBook, but get the same problem using either iPhone on the iBook.

    I did notice that there is no ~/.ssh/known_hosts file generated on the iBook at all.

    Unfortunately, I don't know enough about ssh to trouble-shoot this any further. Anyone have any ideas?

    I am a windows user and I have not been able to SSH with iPhonetunnel since I upgraded to 2.2

    It gives me a connection refused error every time.

    Can you SSH into your phone with other apps on 2.2.1?

    Hello,
    I have exactly the same problem on my UMBP. Did you find a solution ? I'm using iPhoneTunnel 2.2 I think.
