This is likely to happen if you changed the NIC card on the other
machine or the machine was replaced with a new box. In such a case if
you are sure that this has happened edit the existing lines of the
server and connect. New lines would be added with new key in the file
Also are you sure that ssh is set to follow RSA? AFAIK it follows DSA by
