    so i installed openshh and all that jazz, but when i go to ssh into my ipod i run into some troubles.

    now, i had previously jailbroken my ipod and ssh'd into it many times back in the day, now when i do it i get a big message in terminal:

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    @ 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
    [big long number here]
    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/me/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending key in /Users/me/.ssh/known_hosts:1
    RSA host key for 192.168.1.101 has changed and you have requested strict checking.
    Host key verification failed.

    what do i do to fix this problem?

    thanks in advance for any help!

    Using linux?

    hey
    im taking a guess that you are sshing from ubuntu terminal?

    you need to go to ur home directory(/home/<username goes here>/)
    and clear out the known_hosts document... Can i recomend turning on line numbering to make sure you dont clear out multiple devices.

    hope this helped!

    yeah true both unix based.... do you have like a home folder? that you can go in a browser to? go there then in the address bar add /.ssh/ to ur current address...
    then change the known_hosts doc
    should do it... but cant be sure... not a mac user
