Terminal in SCP doesnt work for me

So this is my dillemma, I'm currently trying to hack my iPod touch using WinSCP, to transfer files. The first couple of times worked, now for some reason I get this error whenever i try to open the terminal "Connection has been unexpectedly closed.Server sent command exit status 127."Error skipping startup message. Your shell is probably incompatible with the application (BASH is recommended). So can anyone help me? I kinda suck at this stuff so no complicated terms :P, this has never happened before for me and i think its more the program then the iPod, so can anyone help? :?

Re: Terminal in SCP doesnt work for me

Sorry, I'm not sure what does not work. So are you able to login with WinSCP (maybe using SFTP)? DO I understand right that you get an error after going to Commands > Open Terminal?

The SSH server is probably not able to start a shell. Are you able to login with some SSH terminal (like PuTTY)?

yeah i can log in with putty, but i'd rather use the the terminal provided in winscp
OK would it help if you specify /bin/bash on scp/shell tab of login dialog?
