Strange message when trying to ssh into Apple TV

Well, did the JB procedure with no errors but ATV2 dont look different. And according to this forum it shouldnt? But to check if the JB really got through all the way I tried to, through terminal access it. And I got this message;

 

 

 

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

@    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

ed:05:65:61:4a:54:3a:f6:01:ef:e0:0c:4e:aa:80:17.

Please contact your system administrator.

Add correct host key in /Users/NiklasMapp/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.

Offending key in /Users/NiklasMapp/.ssh/known_hosts:1

RSA host key for 192.XXX.X.XX has changed and you have requested strict checking.

Host key verification failed.

 

 

 

Changed the IP in above message because…well it felt safer. :-/

 

So what is that message about, and how do I proceed to really get stuff happening in my ATV2?

Im really new to this and have VERY litte skills in terminal use, so any answer provided should really be on a low level :slight_smile:

All help appreciated!

This is about as good an explanation as I have seen.  Seems like a LOT of people have been getting that message lately.  I did, and the link below worked for me.

Hope it helps.

 

Why just don’t delete the “known_hosts” file. It just a log file that can be deleted at any time.

Thank you, Ill look into it asap!

Btw, how do I delete the  “known_hosts” file?
