    I just restored my iPod touch and jailbroke it again a few days ago. I've installed OpenSSH, but it won't work. When I use Cyberduck to SSH into my iPod touch, it can't connect. I've tried everything, but still no luck. I never once had this problem before I restored it. Any ideas of what's happening?

    It takes about 30 seconds on the first connect to establish the keys but, after that, it should log in instantly. So if it seems like it's not working... just wait.

    When i first install OpenSSH after a restore, nothing BUT Putty works for the first connection. After I login in via Putty, anything works.

    Thanks, but it's still not working. I tried reinstalling it, changing to Static IP, etc, but still no luck. When I try to SSH, it just does this:

    STFP is the same thing as SSH. Before I restored my iPod touch, I was having no problems using SSH. All I had to do was just install OpenSSH, and connect with Cyberduck. Now, I can't seem to connect no matter what I do.

    Heh, turns out my Mac and my iPod touch weren't on the same wireless network. It's working fine now. :D

    Hah, that same thing has happened to me before. It makes you feel dumb afterwards, but you'll never fall for that one again.
