Re: SSH Verifiation Failed.

The known_hosts file is on your local machine and is updated when you first connect to a new remote machine. This file only needs editing when an IP address or hostname for the same machine changes. The public key is generated on your local machine and ends with the .pub filename extension. That file must be appended to the remote machine's .ssh/authorized_keys file. Make sure the public key is added to the remote system as one line only. And permissions on both local and remote systems should be:

drwx------ ./
drwxr-xr-x ../
-rw------- authorized_keys
-rw------- id_dsa
-rw------- id_dsa.pub
-rw-r--r-- known_hosts
-rw------- prng_seed
