Question GRsync Error! Host key verification failed...


Hi.

I can connect to Linux Mint 10 Laptop from Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop via Nautilus, File, Connect to Server and SSH. Both machines can ping each other. But I cannot use grsync between Desktop to Laptop. It wont accept the password for laptop (even though I am typing it in correctly). I disabled all firewalls for this task.

I first get this message (I put in xx for security reasons):

Code:
The authenticity of host '192.168.1.11 (192.168.1.11)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 57:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:2f.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
I type in yes
Then I get this error when I run grsync:

Code:
*** Launching RSYNC command (simulation mode):
rsync -r -n -t -v --progress --delete -l --exclude-from=/home/LS/Documents/I.T_General/I.T_GL/Networking/Synchronisation/GRsync/GRsync(Desktop-Laptop)Exclude-List.txt /home/LS/ 192.168.1.11:/home/LS/

Host key verification failed.
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(601) [sender=3.0.7]
Rsync process exit status: 255
I have deleted the .ssh folder on my desktop but that did not solve this. There is no .ssh folder on my laptop home directory.

Just after you respond 'yes' to the RSA Authentication message do you get another message saying the fingerprint has now be stored or similar? If not, that is the step at which things start going wrong I think.

Hi soldersplash. Please excuse my late reply. No, I get no message like that. I've found that using rsync without Grsyns all is fine then.
