SSH trouble iPhone & Cyberduck ??
Had real truoble getting Cyberduck connected. Tried any configuration under the sun, so downloaded Fugu, turned WPA security off and hey presto I'm in !! (iPhone4 - Greenpois0n 4.3.2) , used port 22
OK here's the deal folks, turn of all security on router, connect Cyberduck/Fugu (both in turn if you've got them) - bookmark connection and Quit. Put security back on router - all works brilliantly
Just to say that somebody in a different forum poopooed this idea, well I'm only prorating what happened to me and the solution, if anyone in the know can explain it to me please do !! As far as I'm concerned anything to do with computing and in particular networking is a pain in the @ss at the best of times

Huh... That is strange. I am on 4.2.1 using greenpoison with a 3gs and I used cyberduck just last night. I didn't have any problems. Used my phones ip, username 'root' password 'alpine' port 22 and I was in. I didn't have to turn off my security on my router. I wonder why that happened to you. I'm with you, someone please explain.

Finally, as part of your "solution" is to use two different SSH clients (one after the other) it is possible you have encountered a default SSH security gotcha.
Have you restored/updated/reloaded your iPhone since you last connected from the same computer via SSH to this iPhone (or another device with the same IP address)?
Each device running a SSH service generates a unique key when SSH is installed, the client keeps track of the key/IP address (or hostname) combination and either warns or "blocks" connection when the saved key doesn't match the key sent by the SSH service you are trying to connect to.
This is to prevent "man in the middle" attacks.
It's possible that Fugu overwrote the saved key associated with that IP/domain name with the new key supplied by the SSH service (this should be only done after warning you of the risks in accepting a new key).
Most SSH clients use a common/shared location for saving these keys, so once Fugu updated the key, Cyberduck may suddenly start working.
Personally I don't use either of these clients (as I've seen only reports of problems with them). From my understanding they are both thin wrappers over OpenSSH.
