    Another weird one. I've used openssh in the past from two different computers. But now I won't work from any. I've run the services program (NetServices) and wifi & openssh are turned on and it shows the correct IP address for the phone. However when I try and connect it fails. I can run Term-vt100 and ping from the phone to another device on the network. However I can't ping the phone.

    Any ideas? Is there a config file that needs to be deleted and rebuilt?

    Thanks, Joe

    Verify the IP address of the iPhone. You can do this inside term-vt100 using "ifconfig -a" or inside "Settings" --> "WiFi" and clicking the arrow to the right of the WiFi network to which you are connected.

    Another thing to try is to install OpenSSH always used to work for me automatically until I installed Once I installed that, I needed to turn on SSH manually in the program every time I went to use SSH. Good luck!

    Turned out to be a flaky version of firmware for my home wi-fi device. Upgraded to latest and it works great.
