Thread: OpenSSH Using WinSCP Issue
10-21-2009, 11:01 AM #1OpenSSH Using WinSCP Issue
I'm having an issue with connecting to my iPhone using WinSCP that I hope someone can help me out with. It's a jailbroken iPhone running 3.1.2, with SBSettings and OpenSSH installed, connecting through WiFi from an XP SP3 computer.
The problem is that I can only connect periodically, or what seems like randomly. I'll have my iPhone open to the springboard, then enter in the IP address into WinSCP and it will take about 10-15 tries to get it to connect. Finally, once I'm in I can leave it running for 2 hours and still have a strong connection, I just can't figure out the right steps to get it to connect easily.
I've had some luck playing around with the phone on standby, then trying to connect, then hitting the power button to bring it back to the lockscreen, but it's nothing scientific. I'm just hoping someone else had this issue and was able to resolve it.
