    This appears to be what the Android community refers to as 'root`ing' it appears NOT to be possible YET.

    i have researched what rooting your android is, i did this before i posted and that is not what i mean. winscp is a tool you can use to remote access your phone so you can browse its files/folders, exp....../root/stash/mobile/user/app



    in order for you to do it with the iphone,you had to install these apps on your phone,open ssh, automatic ssh/toggle ssh and i think open ssl.
    winscp connects to your phone threw the network, your phone will need to be connected to wi-fi. hope this clears up my question a lil better. plus how can i find what my wi-fi ip is on my phone,when its connected to wi-fi

    I don't think there is an ssh program yet, but you can see your IP by going to settings -> wireless-> in there somewhere. I've checked it before

    I have on the public side.

    port 22 is open and other interesting ports, however there is not an ssh daemon on port 22.

    I'll try on my local network tonight and see if it's different.

    connectbot is a ssh client. you use this to connect to other host. inorder to ssh to droid, a ssh daemon must be running in droid. openssh in iphone is a daemon which allows you to connectto it.

    Untill someone figures out how to root droid, i dont think it'll be possible to run a ssh daemon in it.

    Or you can download the android developer toolkit and use adb shell, its very similar to ssh.
