    Default New To SSH
    I have openSSH on my phone and have never used it and was wondering if someone could explain to me what it is, what it does, what i need to install on my pc for it to work and how to create folders using it?

    Thank you.

    You have to install WinSCP on your computer. SSH is a secure protocol for transfer files. It's like FTP but with more security. So to connect to your iPhone you have to setup WinSCP with the iPhone IP(on host name in WinSCP), username and password. If you are using 1.1.3/1.1.4 user is:

    On file protocol you have to put SFTP.
    The other things, leave it like default.

    Hope it works..

    Ok, there's some great guides as to get connected through SSH, but where is a guide to show specifically how to access a file path and execute what you want to do? I.E. - put a .png image as your new dock image.

    I stopped working in a command line interface 4 years ago. I feel like a baby fresh off the nip here

    Wait! Hold the iPhone!
    whoa. Noob i am indeed. I was using PuTTY. Disregard.

    You need to use the iphone's wireless connection for SSH. Would be nice if it could do wired.
