sftp problem
« on: February 04, 2013, 08:06:05 AM »
Recently our sftp server changed a "key" to allow access and Photo Mechanic will not let me accept the new key.   Other ftp application will bring up a window asking to accept or deny so I am wondering how to get Photo Mechanic to allow this new key.

What version of Photo Mechanic are you using and what OS do you run Photo Mechanic on?

Thanks,

It looks like the host key changed, and we don't have hooks for bringing up a UI and allowing editing of your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file
We suggest you try connecting to the same server using the command line sftp which should then tell you which line to delete in your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file.
