    My wireless signal is poor and makes SSH a pain, how can I just connect with the dock connector via USB and browse my phone?

    From what I understand iphonebrowser is only for windows and transmit and fugu are both wireless like cyberduck i've been using.

    thanks

    I would like to know this is well. Trying to SSH with my crappy wireless connection blows. I usually end up tethering it using PDAnet but a usb solution would be nice.

    There is a video on YouTube that tells you how to SSH via USB I did it all the time it is so much faster then wifi.

    I have the link in another post of mine I'll see if I can get it for you.

    ssh via usb iphone mac osx python terminal cydia openssh

    For those users with a Mac computer who are Googling and looking for a method to ssh via usb to a current generation firmware iOS device (e.g., an iPhone 4.1), it is not only possible, but fairly easy to accomplish — you need two files — place tcprelay.py and usbmux.py in the same directory on the Mac (with tcprelay.py being chmod-ed so that it is executable, like 755) — from the terminal window inside the directory containing the two aforementioned files, type: ./tcprelay.py -t 22:2222 &

    For non-experts, you can then use a sftp client — the server is localhost, and the port is 2222. For ssh experts who use the terminal, you don’t need my help (I need yours). The files are here:

    Thanks!

    2 years later .... ;)

    This last technique still works but here are the steps:

    Here is the updated "usbmuxd":
    http://cgit.sukima****a.com/usbmuxd.git/

    (huh, won't let me post the link! Well, the first link should eventually get you to this place under newer releases or somesuch...otherwise just google usbmuxd and look for this link)

    After this, I used an SFTP client to log into my phone (see previous post)... very FAST, VERY awesome!
