    RSA key problem.


    I get this when trying to ssh into Debian from my Mac.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ @@@@@@@@@
    @ 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
    05:1f:2b:e8:8b:be:61:39:34:5b:06:4c:17:df:95:9e.
    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/beeee/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending key in /Users/beeee/.ssh/known_hosts:6
    RSA host key for 192.168.0.4 has changed and you have requested strict checking.
    Host key verification failed.
    carnage:~ beeee$

    What caused this?
    Don't know what to do about it either.
    The problem isn't with the Debian machine it's with the Mac.
    The Mac expects a different RSA fingerprint from the Debian machine for some reason.
    But nothing changed to cause this.
    I know that if I were to change the netconfig of the Debian box, the key changes and this will happen.
    But I didn't change it.

    It was as simple as typing "open .ssh" into terminal then deleting the 'known_hosts' file, close terminal reopen it and ssh into the remote machine.
