    ok so ive tried connecting through cyberduck and it always gives me the same message:
    Connection Failed
    The kexTimeout (30000 ms) expired.

    so then i tried terminal and it gives me the message:
    Operation Timed Out

    what am i doing wrong?
    yes in cyberduck im set to SFTP and in terminal im typing ssh [email protected]<ipaddress>
    using the password alpine as well. even tried dottie and didnt work either.
    i am sire im using the right IP address as well.

    I have a question to the OP. When you go into terminal and try to log on to your iPhone. Are you allowed to login?

    In other words. When you go into terminal. Type this and replace the "xx.x.x.x" with your ip address on the iPhone:
    Code:
    ssh [email protected]
    You should be prompted for a password for root. If you haven't changed it, the password should be "alpine"(without the quotations).
    NOTE: You will not see the password as you type it. Don't worry, it's there.

    If performed correctly you should receive a prompt on the terminal that looks like this(Where you see Phoenix-stu below. It will have the name of your device.)
    Phoenix-stu-s-iPhone:~ root#
    This means you are logged in.

    My question is
    1. Does it allow you to log on from there or does it give you an error with a bunch of lines of text?

    no it doesnt let me log in.
    as soon as i type in:

    Code:
    ssh [email protected]
    i click enter
    then after about a minute it gives me the message
    Operation timed out
    does not even ask me for a password or anything

    Try this. Try to uninstall openssh from cydia. Reeboot your phone, install it again, reboot and try to use the terminal command again.

    Let me know if that works.

    ok so i did everything u said and when i went to terminal to use the command, i succesfully logged in
    but then i tried to log in on cyberduck and it didnt work and i got the same message as the beginning
    then i tried using Fugu and nothing at all happened - it said it was connecting then just sent me back to the original page where i wnter my ip address

    so frustrating!

    The only thing that I can think of at this point is that you try to manually enter all of the information into the appropriate boxes.



    1. In Cyberduck, Click on the "open connection" button on the top left.
    2. When the box appears, replace the x's with your ip
    3. Make sure you are on port 22
    4. Make sure you have it set to SFTP at the top.
    5. Enter root
    6. Enter password.

    Try it again and let me know if it works.

    Well. I tried a few things. Do you have the ssh toggle switch installed?

    I just installed it last night and it gave me problems. It would initially turn it off however, when I tried to turn it back on. I got connection problems.
    I uninstalled it and all is working fine.

    hi, i had a similar problem as well
    what i did and it seemed to help was to change the password of my iphone through terminal then use the new password in cyber duck
    to change the password enter:

    passwd

    when logged in in terminal and follow the steps
    then open up cyber duck go through the normal process but use the username: root
    and password: what ever u set it to

    let me now if that works

    i found out that my ipod and my mac have different ip addresses when connected. i hear that they have to be the same but how can i change them to make them the same?
    my mac is running through airport and not connected directly to a router if that helps.
