Hello,



I used to have this work when I was using Mac OSX 10.3.4 client. I have recently installed Mac OSX 10.3.4 Server on that same machine. ... Now when I try to connect, the terminal window starts to conect, then closes very fast. ... I did notice that there was writing in the window. I tried several times and eventually captured a SnapzPro image of the window. ...



What the window says is ...

----------------------------

WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!

Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!

It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed.

The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote is

05:47;and a bunch more key stuff.

Please contact your System Administrator.
Add correct host key in Users/You/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.

---------------------------



I could do that, if I knew what to do. ...



What would be the propper thing to do in that known_hosts file?
