I want to connect to the SSH server on my jailbreaked iPhone via the USB connection (because that connection is much faster than WLAN) from MacOSX.

Right now I am using this:

However, this is really buggy and always breaks when I am transfering a lot of data.

Does anyone know a better solution? Preferable one that is free.

The one who gave the downvote here. Why? – Albert May 15 '10 at 0:56
@Albert there are no downvotes as of now. – Sathya May 15 '10 at 1:21
Well there was one (at least it showed -1 for a short while), maybe he has removed it again. – Albert May 15 '10 at 1:29

You mean why WLAN is slower than USB? That is simple: WLAN allows 54 MBit/sec, USB allows 480 MBit/sec. – Albert May 15 '10 at 2:36

You can use iFunBox GUI app: or python script to make SSH connection via USB
