How to accept a key on OpenSSH_3.5p1

Hello. First I am new to SSH so I apologize if I use any incorrect terms or terminology.
 
I just had a new server brought up in another location. Because this is a new server it will have a new SSH Key. Everyone who is connecting to the system was able to use a windows client that prompted them to accept the new key and that was easy enough.
 
However I have one automated service that I can't seem to get to work. It is running OpenSSH_3.5p1
 
I ran the ssh -vvv user@IP
 
and have the debug output. I don't know what to look for however I gather from the output that it did connect to the IP on port 22 the connection was established then it says
 
Not an RSA1 key file /home/brs/.ssh/identity
 
key_type_from_name: unknown key type '-----BEGIN'
 
key_read: no key found
 
 
I take it from the middle line that it does in fact see a key being sent. It reads the '-----BEGIN' but for some reason it can not understand the key? Is that right? I don't know if this server is sending an RSA or DSA key. I am assuming it matters.
 
Is there a command that I can run on the remote server (by remote I mean the server trying to connect to my ssh server) that will force it to accept what ever key is being provided by my server?
