    Hi,

    I am having trouble SSHing into my iPod Touch with Cyberduck.

    I just get "Connection Refused".

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks.

    Try using the Terminal. Cyberduck is an s/ftp client, and although sftp runs over SSH, I've found Cyberduck to be a bit flaky. Thankfully, my university gives out Fetch to use.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the info, but I would prefer to use something with a GUI as I don't have much experience with the Terminal.

    Thanks for the info anyway. :)

    If you are trying to SSH, Cyberduck won't cut it. If you are trying to SFTP, then it might.

    "ssh username@ipodtouch'sip", then wait for the password prompt (no characters will appear) will do it for ssh in the Terminal. Try it and see what happens.

    Hi,

    I tried that but all that appears is a hash symbol.

    What should I do now?

    Thanks.

    I think that means you're in; try typing "ls" and see what happens. If it returns a listing of files, you've got the right username, password, etc. Check your Cyberduck configuration again, as it might be off (or the program's just b0rked).

    Hi,

    I tried that but I just get "ls: not found"

    Anymore suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Well, you're certainly in then; the iPod just doesn't have that command installed. I'm not really sure what you should do next, but you have SSH access to your iPod Touch. There's gotta be somebody around who knows more than I do at jailbreaking these things...

    Hi,

    Thanks for all your help! :)

    I managed to get Cyberduck working, I had the protocol set to FTP instead of SFTP (SSH Secure File Transfer).

    Thanks again.

    No problem. Enjoy; I'm looking at the iPod Touches with eager eyes.

    are you using a MAC?

    I can not get cyberduck to work either, it is very frustrating!

    I could not get it to work either, but tried Transmit and it is great. Not one problem.

    Yes I am using a Mac.

    I was thinking about trying Transmit, but I quite like Cyberduck now I've got it working.
