    Default problems with WinSCP.. help!
    ok.. for some reason i'm having issues logging into the WinSCP client.

    I'm using the IP Adress assigned to my phone with the name: root / pass: alpine.. isn't this correct? With the file protocol listed as SCP??

    This is annoying it keeps saying Connection Refused. Any ideas?

    You need to install it with ibrickr or installer.app

    do you have BSD Subsystem installed? You need that and OpenSSH

  12. #11
    i have BSD Installed, and openssh is installed.
    and under services SSH is "ON"

    Try plugging in to a different USB port. If that doesn't fix it, reboot the PC and the iPhone, maybe even the router.

    I get an error also it says "no root to host"

    I have BSD Subsystem, openSSH and installer on my phone and my wifi set up works on the phone, also the IP address used is as in the phone wifi settings so can someone suggest how I can fix this

    Thanks

    well i've tried everything, the only thing left to try is the router, i was going to go to my cousins and try that this weekend...... hopefully thats the trick, its the only thing stopping me from customizing my iPhone..

    as for ericidle.... do you have a full bar for the wifi where your at?

    You sure you using right IP? Try using the password "dottie".

  18. #16
    if your asking me? yeah i got the right IP address, and i'm using 1.1.1 i used alpine...but for the hell of it i Did use dottie..... no dice...

  19. #17
    yes got stong wifi from my home router and tied both dottie and alpine passwords but still get that error "no root to host"

    Its really pissing me off as everything seemed fine until I installed services.app to try and reduce power drain on SSH but it did not work, for some reason I cant connect with ibrickr either so cant uninstall services.app

    Can you suggest anything else to try?

    im having the same problem too..i have BSD installed..openSSH installed..and made sure that openSSH was turned on in my services.app....i entered the right IP using username root and password alpine..left the private key blank and protocol to SCP and i still get the error connection timed out

    I have the same problem. I have iPhone firmware version 1.1.1. After jailbreaking and upgrading to firware 1.1.2, everything seems fine on my iPhone (I haven't tried to call using SIM other than AT&T). However, I cannot connect to the iPhone from PC using WinSCP. OpenSSH, BSD Subsystem are installed on my iPhone; SSH is ON. I tried the root/alpine password; the PC and the iPhone are on the same router, ping iPhone's IP and it replies. The error is "Connection time out".

    Please help.

    Thanks

    I cured my problem by replacing services with iToggle and also reinstalling BSD subsystem. I think Services was saying OpenSSH was on when it wasnt. iToggle seemd to switch it on and off better.

    best of luck hope it works for you
