Re: ssh refuse connection


Thanks for the info.
But i may sound funny, but just observed the content of the file known_hosts a combination of unreadable characters.
Where is the correct key determineand how?

# 4  
Remove line three of /.ssh/known_hosts.
When you re-connect, a new key will be generated.
This error can occur if the ip address of the target machine has changed, or if the network card in the target machine has been changed
# 5  
It can also change if you did network restructuring specifically you changed the route from A to B somehow, As jgt said this one is a no-brainer. Get rid of the one line of hex characters in the known_hosts. It will automatically be recreated correctly the first time you connect to the remote host.
