1. Once you are ready, go to and search OpenSSH, then install it.

2. Now launch Cyberduck you downloaded earlier and hit on 'Open Connection' button.

3. Now it is time to enter the IP Address of your iPhone. Don't know where to find your IP? Go to, and choose Wi-Fi. You will see your IP address when you choose the blue arrow.

4. Choose SFTP option from the dropdown menu to enter username and password. For username, type : root and as for Password, type: alpine. And then hit Connect.

5. If you see the Unknown Host message appears, worry not, ignore it and continue your step by clicking Allow.
