    did you reboot your phone? sometimes that's needed.

    also note that when you connect to your phone for the very first time it can take quite a while. When I connect for the first time, WinSCP always complains that the "host will not respond" but after a while it connects anyway.

    if nothing helps, uninstall OpenSSH, reboot, install openSSH, reboot. that should do the trick.

    oh, and make sure it's not turned off via SBSettings.

    Yes i did everything, the error message pops up after a few seconds.

    i think this may be a problem with my network as if i make an adhock and connect it works

    plz help anyways. (it work on my 3g 3.0, before i sold it)
