Suddenly I can't connect to iPhone via SSH. I keep getting this message:
"ssh: connect to host 192.168.2.5 port 22: Connection refused"
Does anyone know what's going on? It's been doing this for 2 days now. Never did it before unless I got the IP address wrong, but even then I'd just correct it and it'd work.
I'm using Fugu on a MacBook Pro running Leopard 10.5.2 with 16GB 1.1.2 iPhone ZiPhoned to 1.1.4
Any help much appreciated, thanks.

Just to make sure, did you enable SSH on your phone?
Ha haa haaa! Thank you. Stupid me! Sorry about this post. A couple of days back I installed BossPrefs and, guess what? I had SSH turned off. Now I feel R-E-A-L-L-Y dumb (cringe).
Many thanks... funnily enough, it seems to be working fine now with SSH enabled (!)

Oh, and thanks to psylichon too... you were obviously pointing me in the same direction. Brilliant.

Hah, and I deleted it right away thinking I was barking up an obvious tree. Funny you caught that!
