RE: ssh and shosts file

Note:  I never really understand what I am doing with Linux, I
just try brute force...

I have solved similar problems by setting up the .shosts files to
the way they should be and logging in to the "remote" machine
(usually using my password or passphrase) and then logging back
into the "local" machine (again with a password/phrase).  After
this, it usually worked.  If this doesn't help, I am afraid that
I have no other suggestions except to find someone who actually
understands ssh.
