    Hello all -

    Okay, so here's my question and hopefully someone has an answer for me.

    Today I got rid of Vista and installed Ubuntu 8.04 onto my desktop. With vista, I SSH'd into my iPhone via data cable, iPhone Tunnel, and WinSCP. Bam, I'm connected into my iPhone.

    How do I go about this with Ubuntu? I know you can wirelessly SSH into the iPhone, but the problem with that is that I don't have a WiFi connection in my apartment (I leach off the neighbors connection :rolleyes:). I've googled and search here and other forums, but to no avail. So, my question to you all is this.

    Can I SSH into my iPhone via cable using Ubuntu? If so, how?

    Thanks for reading,

    No, you'll have to do it through Wi-Fi. Open a terminal, ssh user@ipaddress.

    Or you can use an FTP client. Surely there are several included with Ubuntu.

    If you were able to connect to the phone wirelessly via Vista, you can do it with Ubuntu.

    You don't need any fancy application to do it either, it's all built in. You can do it straight from the terminal command line in Ubuntu.

    The commands are "ssh user@ip address" and "scp file user@ip_address:path/to/file"

    I wasn't ever able to because my computer doesn't have any wirelessly technology built in it. I had to SSH using the cable.
