Hi SOTL. Fish uses SSH. When you connect to another machine for the first
time, a key is created in /home/user-name/.ssh/known_hosts. I have had
problems with this. I have many distro's on one of my two machines. Some had
the same IP address. I wondered why I had problems connecting to distro's
with the same IP address, until I discovered this file. Now I have made sure
to have unique addresses for all the distro's that run on this machine. I
wonder if, as your use of Konqueror using Fish to connect to the other
machine has created a key which is is specific to using Konqueror. I would
suggest removing the key in /home/user-name/.ssh/known_hosts, then trying to
connect with Kbear. If this doesn't work. Using Konqueror, fish directed to
the other machine, will simply create a new key, and you should be able to
access the other machine again from Konqueror.

Incidentally, I don't have Kbear. Where did you find it? Nigel.

ps: I'm on FC2 at the moment.
