usbNetwork and Windows

Hi, I am trying to copy some certificate to this location /var/local/java/keystore/, but I can´t find it ... I have my Kindle3 hacked, usbNetwork works too, I can connect to kindle via telnet, but it is all I can. Anybody can give me an advice, how to do this in Windows - in some programme or via some browser?

Thank you so much.

If you have telnet or ssh access you can also use any sFTP program to browse your kindle (don't forget to make the K3 filesystem writable with the command "mntroot rw")

I am doing this o mac:
connect via your sFTP client to the kindle
You will end up in an empty dir (I believe it is something like /tmp/root/)
from there you go "down" to the root dir (/../).
From the root dir you browse "up" to:
/var/local/java/keystore/
Copy your keystores and presto..

The problem is, when I try to connect to kindle (WinSCP or FileZilla) it wants password - and blank isn´t accepted. It show me fatal error and problem with verification.... via telnet on windows (cmd line) I normally connect, but I am beginner, so I don´t know necessary commands, so that´s way I want to do this via some browser.

If you have telnet you can telnet to the device via usb.
There you can set your new PWD by entering "passwd" on the commandline..
Use the new pwd to login via sFTP

when using telnet you are "root"
so the username who's pasword you are changing is the pwd from the user "root".
You can simply check this by giving the command "whoami"
