VShell 'new connection' issue


I am working on an issue where when a connection is made via Vshell, the end user is always prompted with:

"VSMUNIS - (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)" tries to establish a connection, but has not the correct key. Would you like to authorize it anyway?

This does not affect all users, just a small group.

Is there a local security settings that may be causing the issue?

Hello Scott,

It sounds like the client application connecting to VShell likely has a cached host key for that IP address or hostname, but it is not the current VShell SSH host key.

We have a White Paper available on our website here that explains Host Keys in detail.

What is the client application?

In SecureCRT and SecureFX you can manage host keys via the SSH Host Keys category of Global Options.
