12:35 AM |

In order to see all content, whether directories or files, hidden of our Nokia N900 from your PC, we will  install the OpenSSH server. It is imperative to have a wifi connection to get it.

The steps are:

Install the OpenSSH server on our N900. OpenSSH is a client-server, which implements the SSH protocol, which is a protocol encryption to control remote devices via console. You can download and install from the Extras repository

  1. Download and install the program on the PC WinSPC, click here to download. With WinSPC you can access the directories on our N900.
  2. Get the IP of our N900:
    • Access as root, 
    • Type “ifconfig” and you get our IP (preceded by inet).
     Run WinSPC. Fill the fields as follows:
    • Host name: enter the IP of our N900
    • Port number: 22
    • User name: root
    • Password: Use the password OpenSSH.
    • File Protocol: SFTP
    • Mark box “Allow SCP fallback”
     Click Login, and will open a window where we can see the content of our Nokia N900 (right windows).
     We can now see hidden content for our Nokia N900. This will also help us to install many applications that require it
