    if it's just a connection timed out problem you can try this

    Open WinSCP, edit your connection, go to Connections on the left pane, then Timeouts on the right and increase it to 60 seconds

    the first log on with SSH is supposed to take longer than normal.

    This worked for me

    The first time (especially after jailbreaking) you run SSH, it takes about 30 to 40 seconds to create pairing keys. WinSCP WILL timeout. Use a command line program like putty.exe which will not timeout. Or change the settings on WinSCP for a longer timeout period.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    I have the same problem as the topic creator. I have installed BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH onto my iPhone and followed all of the topics I can find on this issue. I still cannot connect to my phone vie WinSCP due to the "Connection Timed Out" Error.

    I have tried increasing my server response time to 60 seconds and restarting my phone but nothing seems to work. I do notice however that when I change the response time the error message pops up within 25 seconds, not the 60 that I change it to.

    Any suggestions? And what is putty.exe?
