Re: [SLUG] SSH client question

That still allows the host key to be permanently stored, and if it doesn't
match an already stored key then you get a warning message but the
connection continues to be established.

Incidentally, with openssh the man page says that one of the agruments to
StrictHostKeyChecking can be "ask".  I couldn't get this to work.
