If you changed or re-install this server recently, and if you are really sure
that no other computer is using its IP address, then you can reset this alarm
by deleting the ~/.ssh/known_hosts in a new MobaXterm local terminal.
Add correct host key in /home/mobaxterm/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
Offending ECDSA key in /home/mobaxterm/.ssh/known_hosts:10

1. Go to /home/mobaxterm/.ssh/known_hosts and delete line 10:
vi /home/mobaxterm/.ssh/known_hosts

Open in new window

2. Double check your password.

You are running mobaxterm from a WIndows machine I assume, have a look here:

C:\Documents and Settings\<your_username>\.ssh\

for the known_hosts file

open that file and delete line 10 (with notepad++ for example).

Right. mobaxterm is using it's own 'home', it is located depending on your general setting 'Persistent Home Directory'.

To edit the file, start mobaxterm and do not login to other servers. You are now in /home/mobaxterm

Changedir to .ssh (use: cd .ssh) and edit that known_hosts file.

Do you have any idea  how to set PS1 values in this tool.
i am able to do it partially by setting this value in .bash_profile by
export PS1="\e[1;33m\u: \w $ \e[m"

i am getting PS1 yellow as expected, but  not getting bold and bright color despite settings done in PS1 values as you can see.

my guess is there may be some gui settings in tool, we can achive it.

any advice ..

if you wish I can raise new question to answers my query

I'm assuming you're setting PS1 on the Linux machine you're logging into from mobaxterm? If you do the same using PuTTY, is the PS1 setting working?

But more detail on PS1 in mobaxterm would be a new question, yes.

I know what impressive means (look at my profile), it's just that not everyone is impressed by the same and thus is this subjective, I'm not impressed by mobaxterm because I don't use the graphical features. That and the fact that it is crippled in it's free version, you need to pay for all functionality. So I'm fine with you being impressed with the tool, I'm just not.
