    I have installed OpenSSH and have it enabled on my phone. I have tried connecting to the Wifi address on my phone, but it won't connect.

    My phone and laptop are on the same wifi network..

    I used root and alpine as the user name and password.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I'm running 4.1 on my phone.

    I have had the same problem since jailbreaking my iphone 4 on 4.1 (via limarian). For some reason, SSH never worked via SFTP on Cyberduck or even from Terminal. However, I got Bonjour to work fine and works primarily the same way (via wifi, same passwords as SSH). If your on a PC may not be so helpful, then you can just use one of the software interfaces that will connect to your phone root via USB.

    Change your password to something else via MobileTerminal, see if that helps.

    Thanks! Disabling the firewall on my Mac did the trick!
