Thread: winscp not working please help!

  1. #1
    Exclamation winscp not working please help!
    I am trying to ssh apps onto my iphone 3g w/2.0 firmware. I have openssh installed and turned on, I have BigBoss Prefs set to on, I used Cydia WhatIP to get my ip address, using winscp with user root, and alpine password. Winscp gives me error message Network erro: Connection Refused! I have read many threads, and still no go! WTF! Please advise. Kudos to anyone that can SUCCESSFULLY advise!

    This is probably a silly question, do you have wifi on.

    Also sometimes it does the connection error for me, but then I try to connect again straight after and it works.

    Smile wifi on?
    Hey there! Thanks for the help. That is not a silly question at all. I think it is. I can access websites from Safari. That means it is on right? When I go to setting/wifi/network it shows none, yet I can access the internet. Any suggestions?

    Shouldn't you be looking under Settings/ Wifi?

    And are you using the iPhone's Wifi address?

    Wifi settings shows not connected. When you go to choose network, none are available.

    Wifi is not connected so I used the Cydia app WhatIP. Isn't that what the application is for?

    Well, you need an active wifi connection in order to access the wifi address on the iphone. You do have a wireless access point where you are, don't you?

    Default wireless access point.
    No wireless access here. But would the ip that the WhatIP application gives me not be the same as that wifi ip? There has got to be a way around not having a wireless access point if you have an internet connection since it can be done on a computer, right?

    Like Napoleon_PhoneApart said, You need a wireless access point connection to your pc to use ssh in the way your doing it:

    check out this guide on how to do it without connection to wifi from Zodttd's forum
