    Upon trying to SSH into my iPhone i get the below message...

    'Network error : Connection Refused'

    I tried untold times last night to connect but i just got the same message over and over.I eve installed the latest version hoping that would fix it but to no avail.Strange as it was working fine the other day.

    Anyone know why this is happening and/or has it happened to you?

    if winscp is what I think it is (a bit like an explorer for your iphone when it's connected to your laptop) then I used to use it..but had so many problems.

    I now use something called ifunbox which works brilliantly...and has never let me down

    What do i need to do if it has?

    I'm sure it has as i do tend to turn my router off when i go to work.

    And i can't check right now as i'm at work.

    Likely it is an IP address change then. If it has changed, check it when you get home to what your router lists it as. Change accordingly in WinSCP.
    Say your previous IP for the phone was listed as 192.168.1.123, turning it off has likely reset the listings so it might be 192.168.1.112 now. This is listed in SBSettings as well under your WiFi IP.
