    I have tried WinSCP and Filezilla to gain access to the files on my iPod Touch... I cannot however connect. This is what I have done.

    1. Jailbroke my iPod Touch
    2. Gone into WinSCP / Filezilla
    3. Input IP Address
    3. Username = root
    4. Password = alpine
    5. Hit connect
    6. Connection Fails

    My questions are...
    1. Do I need to download something else to my iPod Touch?
    2. Is there a certain port I need?
    3. THE MOST IMPORTANT>>>>> WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

    PLEASE HELP?

    P.S. This is so that I can add ROMs for the NES Emulator.

    First: Don't post your iPod Touch's IP

    Second: download Open SSH out of Installer

    Ip Address?

    Is everyone's IP address different? Is it a secret?

    If you post your IP, anybody can access your files.

    Easy way to end up with a brick


    Still, with an ssh utility, you should be able to modify your stuff

    If you post your local IP address, only people on your network can access your files. But if you post your internet IP address (which I don't think you can find in the settings on the iPod Touch) then people can access your files from anywhere.

    Make sure you're using SFTP, not regular FTP. Also, make sure the IP address is the local one (I'm not sure how you could mistake them, but it's possible :p

    Hope this helps

    I just figured this out, sort of. I had SSH turned off. Make sure it is turned ON. Make sure in whatever client you are using it is under SFTP transfer. Get the IP address off the wi-fi settings from the touch. Enter the user name (which is root) and the password (which is alpine) hit connect. I am confused from this point forward. I have a site which tells me where to put my download iphone apps, but I can't find them in my ssh client....errrrgh. im so close.

    Are you in the right directory? Make sure you start out at '/', not /private/var or whatever it automatically goes to when you connect.

    I was in the default directory, I'll check out right now. Hold on.

    edit: ok so I found all the files I need. I put all the iphone apps in the correct files...so now what? I know I'm supposed to change something to '775' or '755' can't remember off the top of my head. Then what?

    Now open up an SSH terminal (or terminal on your iPod, I think that works too, but ask someone to make sure) and type:
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/*
    that changes all the permissions.
