    Well, I have jailbroken my iPod touch to 1.1.2 and I cant connect to cyberduck :S I get some stupid error and it asks for my p/w again when I use user name "root" and p/w "alpine" I use all the proper things like my source is my IP address and like port is 22 and I use SHTP or what ever that is, and still it wont connect :S.

PLEASE HELP!

    I don't know if this will help, but I use Cyberduck cause it's a lot easier on a Mac for me. Make sure your "server" is the same as your iPod touch's IP address. Found at Settings>General>Network>Your Wi-Fi Network>IP Address.

    Also, make sure you have the Open SSH installed in your Installer app. under the "System" downloads.

    Try typing this into the terminal, it helped me out:

    rm /Users/insert_user_name/.ssh/known_hosts

    basically the server address your telling cyberduck to connect to has to be the same address as the current IP address on your touch.

    as already stated go to settings --> wifi --> in there it should have a tick next to a connection to say your touch is connected to the network. which ever has the tick click the blue arrow next to the connection and put the IP address in that shows up into cyberduck.

    Open ssh doesn't want to install itself on my ipod. And know I need that one for file transfer, right? The package downloads on my ipod, but than during the install, the screen jumps back to the home screen. Any suggestions?

    Just make sure you have SSH turned on with the iPhone, you have the correct IP address of the iPhone, and you select the SFTP connection in CyberDuck.

    Please let me know if these are all in order.

    Please provide more information.

    What version of iPhone firmware, how did you jailbreak, and do you already have lots of apps and customizations installed?

    So far, my guess is that you already have too many apps installed and filled up the OS partition on the iPhone. Therefore, you can't download more programs until you move apps/customizations to the other partition.

    Boss Tool makes this process easy, but if you can't install that, then you will need to manually move everything.

    Just make sure you know what you are doing before you move files around, as you are accessing the root of the iPhone.

    I still only see my mac directory in Cyberduck, not my ipod. How do I go on from here? I don't see a way to open or close my ssh on the ipod, do I need to ?

    1) Open a new connection
    2) Select SFTP as the connection
    3) Server = IP Address of iPhone/Touch
    4) User = root, Password = alpine
    5) Connect

    Also, make sure Open SSH is turned on before you do this. You can download another app called "Services", which will have an on/off toggle for Open SSH.

    The first login may take over 30 seconds, so just be patient. After the first time, it will connect immediately.

    Also, you will get a popup about a key mismatch. Ignore this and hit Allow.

    You should then be able to access the root of the iPhone/Touch.

    Please let me know if you are having trouble.

    I still can't get in my ipod. I use the address that I found on my mac but it only goes to my mac itself, not to my ipod. And when I use the sftpperotocol in Cyberduck, it asks for username and password which I used from your posting ( it is really root and alpine? )

    i believe the problem is that I don't have the ipod address, only the mac address. Or?

    First make sure you are connected to WiFi with your iPhone/Touch.

    Then, go into Settings, click on Wifi, and click on the Blue Arrow next to your Wifi connection.

    You should then see the IP Address of the iPhone/Touch.

    Use that address in the server settings of CyberDuck.

    Let me know if that works.

    This is the problem: "Then, go into Settings, click on Wifi, and click on the Blue Arrow next to your Wifi connection."
    I don't see that arrow. I am using 10.4 on my mac, not leopard. Maybe that is why I can't find that? You mean go into System preferences/sharing on my mac, right?

    one more thing...
    I uploaded the scrabbel.app file and now, according the the game site, I have to set permissions to 0775. How do I do this?

    Sorry, I do not have that app, and therefore, do not know much about it.

    I have never had to manually change any settings to get an app to work.

    However, I googled your question and came up with this answer from another forum:

    first make sure u have “jiggy runtime” installed.
    Download Scrabble and install onto your iPhone…(I used ibrickr) then use the “squid” program to 755 the “jiggy” file in your scrabble directory….and whaalaaa…done!!

    Please let me know if this works.

    I installed the jiggy and found in Cyberduck the a jiggy file in the scrabble directory. I right clicked on it (what else to do?) but don 't see a way to set permissions.

    Squid is kind of like Finder, but more advanced and can be used to adjust settings.

    Do not use unless you know what you are doing.

    I installed squid, but it is too complex for me. So I better nos use it. Right clicking on the game file says that the permissions are on 755 (I checked some other files and they all have this one, so it already should be ok). But the game is not showing up on the home screen, nor do I see it in the install section. So uninstalling it is not possible. I don't want that now, I just want it to work...

    Are you inputting your iPhone's IP address and not your computer's?

    Also, what password are you using? Try either alpine or dottie.

    I am also assuming you are using WiFi too.

    to everyone that is having problems with cyberduck, it's essential that you put your ipodtouch/iphone to not go to sleep or auto lock, set it to never while you connecting, I had the same issues, and when I did this it worked fine and it has worked fine ever since.

    you know the drill.
    get services or some way to turn SSH on.
    password: alpine
    Username: root

    set the unit (touch/iphone) to not auto lock, go to settings and do this.

    cyberduck.
    switch to sftp or something like that.
    and type in the information above.
    that should do it if not restart your touch/iphone and computer and try again.

    good luck.
