Trying to install terminal using terminal but its no longer working

I am trying to install nitotv using terminal and ssh like I am used to doing however after jailbreaking the atv and connecting it to the network I tried using ssh root and it is not asking for a password (alpine) it does nothing and just times out. I tried reading as much as I could and tried something through terminal but nothing seems to be working.

I have tried rejailbreaking.
I have tried reseting server

any help would be great!
