    my router is using N only setup (air port extreme), and i cant connect to him with my iphone.

    so i used my mac-mini's airport to create a network (he's connect to the router with cable), connected the iphone to it and managed to use the internet.
    now i'm trying to use sftp to the iphone so i can install hebrew keyboard, but i cant find out what to do.

    so my setup is like that:
    Cable modem ---> Air port extreme ---> Macbook pro (using airport) and Macmini (using ethernet) ---> Macmini's airport creates network ---> iphone

    ermm... have you hacked the iphone? as standard the iphone does not have an SSH client installed and thus no SFTP access.

    If you have hacked the iphone, then you need to connect to the IP address of the iphone, and make sure all these hops are routing the traffic correctly. It might be that they are doing NAT and this is not then routing packets back to the iphone as you hoped.
