Thread: OpenSSH problem!

  1. #1
    Question OpenSSH problem!
    I have my iPhone with rev 1.1.1. I notice that the OpenSSH appliucation is not working (I can't connect to my computer or turn it on via services application). when I llok for it on the installer it looks as installed and it is version 4.6p 1-1.
    I try uninstall it, but, got a message: Error, Main script execution failed!

    can someone let me know what can be the solution of this?

    thanks!

    That is exactly what is happening to me right now!!
    What i guess i did wrong, is that there was 2 openSSH, and I installed one the was under copy coder catergories, and that is the one that won't uninstall?? I was able to install and uninstall the other one, which was named under iphone hack iphone, or something like that. I believe that is the one we need for the whole sshing. But when I install that one, it also doesn;t show up on the homescreen?? I know we need to get the other one off, but with the whole "main script execution failed" error, not sure how else to uninstall it?

    Can someone pleeeeeease help us?? I am trying to learn how to SSH and I can't get too far, if I can't get this one uninstalled and install the correct one?? Please someone??

    Oh! By the way, I am on 1.1.2 now!

    Exclamation how to run ssh
    hey guys, this is a common problem, ill tell u how to run ssh from iphone without the problem of services.

    1- install "Mobile terminal"
    2- enter in mobile terminal and execute these commands:

    cd / (tapp return)
    /usr/sbin/sshd (tapp return)

    here you go!!! ssh is now running ! this is the sshd "SSH daemon"
    is the same as if ur turning on the switch on services but manually.

    3- leave mobile terminal
    4- connect normally to ssh

    We can fix the ssh on services but this will need more time.

    - u can install tapp.app to run this command w/ a single tapp.

    But, I didn't find the mobile terminal, so I used Term-vt100. Then it didn't solve the problem.
    Attached snapview of the commands.
    let me know if i'm still doing it wrong.
    BTW I installed tapp.app, how it works?

    Maybe you could try manually creating the host keys?

    /usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen -d -f /etc/ssh_host_dsa_key -N ""
    /usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen -b 1024 -f /etc/ssh_host_rsa_key -t rsa -N ""

    NetMage, I try it, still don't work!
    I receive a message that can't find the /usr/local/bin/ssh directory.
    any ideas?
    thanks!
