    Thanks.
    The following comes from great "hackthatphone" site. I don't take a credit for it.
    It works! ;-)

    "On your Mac, go to your Appliations folder, then into the Utilities folder. There is a program called Terminal. Launch it. I hope I am painfully clear here. As seen below you will enter two things into the Terminal. Note: after ssh - the character that follows is a lower case l (el), it is not an I (eye). The IP address is YOUR address. In my example it is 10.0.1.11 for MY iPhone. The next line is alpine, which is the default password, unless you changed it.

    ssh -l root 10.0.1.11
    alpine

    Then enter this command:
    passwd

    You will then be prompted to enter your new password, and then confirm it. You'll then be returned to the system prompt when it has been changed. That's it."

    OK! "passwd" is what I needed.

    THANKS.

    Sura,

    would also be a good idea to do the passwd change also for the user "mobile"!
    So, logon again with "ssh -l mobile 192.168...."

    Cheers
