ipod touch 8GB 3g running 3.1.2. Jailbreak with blackra1n, installed openssh via cydia. When I try to connect from PC running XP with either WinSCP or Putty, they time out about 90% of the time, succeed about 10% of the time. Wifi on ipod is working (Safari & Cydia), it shows up in my dlink router as present. I have fixed its ip address in the DHCP server in the router, so a change in address is not the problem.

If I try to ping the ipod from the PC, that also times out, although I don't know if ipod's respond to pings. I wondered if ssh was actually running, but there doesn't seem to be a ps to run on the ipod. I thought I would try to ping out, but I couldn't find a ping for the ipod either.

Any suggestions on what to try next would be appreciated.
