    I have discovered the location of the host keys which are causing some SSH problems for those who have 2.0 jailbroken.


    *This is for WinSCP users only. I can modify this guide for those with CuteFTP Pro, but that will have to come later.

    1. Create a System Restore point. Open up the Start Menu and navigate to All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. We'll be tweaking the Registry, so it's best to be safe.

    2. Click Start, then Run and enter "regedit", without the quotes.

    3. Navigate to
    Code:
     HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Martin Prikryl->WinSCP 2->SshHostKeys.
    
    There should be a list of keys.


    4. Once again, we will take a precaution. Select all of the Keys, and then go to File > Export and export the keys to a safe place, just in case.

    5. Delete all the Keys.

    You may need to restart your system, but I have not tested this.

    Good Luck!

    Thank you. That's what two months of no school does to me.

    Looks like you're the first one.

    That's great to hear.

    I scavenged for the location of the host keys, and the last place I checked was the Registry.

    I don't have SshHostKeys map.

    I only have 'Configuration' and 'Sessions'

    And my SSH doesn't work >.<
