    I would like to SSH into my account via RBrowser. But I need the IP address of the host. How can I find that?

    You mean of your phone? Settings -> WIFI -> tap the "i" of the connected network

    If you have iFile you can do most things on the device itself, rather than using an SSH client.

    No, I know how to find my IP address, it's the host address at the other end that I need.

    Oh, in Windows, open a cmd shell, and type "ipconfig". On OSX, of which I know much less, you need to go to the network settings to see, but there must be a way to get this from a shell (but I don't know how). Is this what you meant?

    EDIT: I haven't used Linux in a while, but Google says ifconfig is the way to go.

    I do have iFile, but I'm just more comfortable doing stuff from my computer, it's bigger.
    I'll give it a shot, thanks . . .

    You sure it's the main computer? When opening up an SSH connection to an iDevice for file transfer you'll use the IP of the phone rather than the computer.

    I'm aware of that. What I need is the host name so that I can transfer the files on my computer to the IP address of my phone.

    Hey, just trying to help. As I/we have stated the host/URL is the IP of your phone on your wireless network e.g 192.168.0.6 username: root password: alpine

    Change your protocol to SSH as well, FTP isn't the right one.
