    I still cannot resolve the problem. I have also reinstalled BSD System, Community Sources, OpenSSH, iToggle.

    Anyone has experience on this, please help. Thanks!

    try the other password, dottie. For some wierd reason I had it on alpine and it always worked, then today it stopped working. I put dottie in and it accepted it.

    im getting the same issue.
    up untill today Ive never had a problem.

    recently ive updated gpsphone to version 1.0 and uninstalled sketches, wouldnt have thought that would make any differance though.

    have reinstalled openssh, rebooted phone & pc, still wont connect
    getting the following message: host has not responded.

    tried it again while typing this and got a security breach error wierd!!!!!

    Arrow same problem
    Hi everybody.

    I had exactly the same problem. I coudnt connect no matter how. Fortunately I had a second router here and dit the trick. It is working just fine now. Try to restart yours or perhaps reset and/or update it.

    Also, make sure that Auto-Lock is off. I've had issues at times where Auto-Lock is set, and had connection refused issues...

    okay. Listen close if you're having this problem... I have a linksys router and my phone says its ip is.

    When I try to use that is gives me that error. But when I use that ending in 104 it works every time. Try something close to it

    I would've never expected that so many guys are facing the same problem I'm facing. As with all of you, I got ver.1.1.1, OpenSSH installed and running, BSD Subsystem installed, root/alpine (and dottie) credentials, tried similar IP's (.102, .103 and .104 instead of the .101 it gives me), I've reset the router again and again, reboot the PC... the works...still, no luck...
    Any other suggestions??? despite the fact that so many have already been posted...

    Default Winscp Session Password
    HI I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH WINSCP I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH THIS THREAD BUT HAVN'T FIND ENOUGH INFORMATION ABOUT WINSCP. I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM Why does WinSCP keep on asking me for a session password? even though i have BSD Subsystem open ssh with 1.1.2 everything i have tried to reinstalled BSD Subsystem but didn't resolved the problem. I am trying username as root and password as alpine but it doesn't work still asking for password. Any clue???

    Finally I was able to open WinSCP tonight on my laptop computer (running Vista Office) to use with my iPhone version - 1.0.1 (1C25) modem firmware 03.14.08_G. My router is a Linksys wireless G WRT54GL Here is what I used Host name (my iPhone was showing User name root. Password alpine. Small box opened up asking me for a session password so I tried alpine again and it did not work. So I tried dottie as the password and low and behold it worked I am now able to transfer ringtones and stuff. I hope this helps and works for someone else.
