WTA: Warning: Remote Host Identification



Dear All,

I have 3 linux server, where 1 server (gateway server) the ssh port open for the public, while the other two is closed, only smtp port is open for public. This week I manage the servers from mobile with my notebook installed opensuse 10. First I login to gateway server, then after that I login to the other servers. But one day, after I successfully loged to the gateway server, and when trying to login to another server, I have this warning.

>>>>>

This mean that my gateway server is under attack, or my others server under attack? While remote, the connection is bad, I had several drops connections. Can this cause of the problem?

The others server are smtp server, an only open smtp port for public.

Best Regards
