    i just quickpwned my 16gb touch and everything went smoothly. however, i downloaded openssh, typed ssh root@<ip address> into terminal, and this popped up:

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    @ 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 host is
    1d:89:2c:.......(blah blah blah)
    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/............./.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending key in /Users/.............../.ssh/known_hosts:8
    RSA host key for 192............. has changed and you have requested strict checking.
    Host key verification failed.

    any ideas what this is caused by and how to fix it would be great. thanks a lot.
    ps. i have a theory that my laptop might be causing the problem because my ipod shows up as a "shared" computer in finder and it doesn't go away. i could be wrong...

    Code:
    rm ~/.ssh/known_hosts
    
    After removing your known hosts file, try connecting again.

    or if you dont want to try that you could just install filezilla since it overwrites the known hosts cache file. this will get rid of the error and is a better ssh client than putty or the terminal...
