Re: [opensuse] ssh connection refused since upgrading to 12.1

On 11.4 I had ssh working perfectly without passwords between my laptop

to the desktop fails because the remote server's host key has changed.


Add correct host key in /home/bob/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this
Host key verification failed.

I'm not sure which file to copy onto my USB stick and where to put it
(~/.ssh/known_hosts probably, but nothing I've put there so far has worked).

There must be a simpler way of solving this problem, because most
situations will involve hosts separated by significant distances, rather
than being in the same room.

Any suggestions, please?


Yes. The key for the server has changed. Look through your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file and delete the line for the system you're trying to connect to. Then, the next time you try to connect, you'll be asked if you wish to accept the key. After you do, you will be able to connect again.
