Check ip address

I did have the same problem a couple days ago.

Double check on ip address.
I had some conflict when I loaded up 3 laptops to the network and one laptop took the same ip address when iPhone went to sleep.
Do ipconfig /renew or reset the ip on iPhone.

FYI: if you go to your iPhone's network settings and where it says DHCP, BootP, and Static Select Static once an IP Address has been assigned and then that will be a permanent IP Address for your iPhone.

yes, if you are going to use SCP I definitely recommend using a static IP on the iPhone. There is enough to worry about without having to deal with changing IPs.

(And install rm on the iPhone too!)

Im trying to install NES on my phone. I got this link(http://hacktheiPhone.com/iPhone_inst...r_windows.html)

Its a step by step guide to install NES. But now im stuck on the "WinSCP" part. I can't log in. I read somewhere on my phone i can find the ip address on the static tab but its not there. I tried logging in wit User:root Pass:dottie. I also tried alpine.

Please help, I don't know what im doing wrong.

BTW what is the proper Username and Password? b/c I read somewhere that is now alpine for the pass. Is that true?

Thanks in advance!:laugh2:

Anyone having problems with WinSCP should read this. I explain an alternative and much easier method to install NES or any other app for that matter.

Are you guys trying to connect to sp wirelessly or do you have your phone connected via USB?
