ssh in only when browsing
Hi, I am a total rookie for iphone. I have 3GS with 3.1.2 and blackra1n and I am trying to SSH into the phone but having connection problems. I start just by trying to ping the phone from my PC and I get timeouts until I start browsing the internet from the iphone. It's like there is a firewall on the iphone which only opens when the iphone tries to connect. I finally got shh and SCP working but only if on the iphone I keep refreshing a webpage. I was thinking what if I did a continuous ping command from the terminal app on the iphone but I cannot find the ping command within terminal. I thought maybe there was a ping app on cydia but I cannot find one.
Please advise if you know what the trouble is.
