Thread: ssh help

  1. #1
    Default ssh help
    so i use winscp to ssh into my iphone. and i have always had this problem where i can only login when i am keeping my iphone so the screen doesnt turn black thus locking it. that means i have to constantly monitor my iphone and touch randomly on the screen so it doesnt lock itself. if i try logging in without going to my home screen, then my wifi address says "N/A" when im in sbsettings. i have to wait for it to go back to the default ip to log back in which is frustrating, but this only happens when i am not on the home screen and the phone is locked. so whats the problem?

    not sure you have a problem. this is the way that WinSCP works, the phone can not sleep or it will disconnect.

    thanks for the prompt response.
    you say thats how winscp works, is there any other program i can use that doesn't require me to keep my phone from "sleeping"?

    why not just extend the sleep time. You might try iPhoneBrowser which uses USB to connect.

    do you mean change the auto lock time? i currently have it set to 1 minute...so if i change it higher then i can leave my iphone unattended while changing around files through ssh?
