Can't manage SSL keys

Description

After renaming the DNS name of a server, I can no
longer connect to it via SFTP. I suspect that the
fzsftp backend is detecting a potential spoof attack
because of the DNS change.

I do not know where the SSH equivalent
of 'known_hosts' is being stored, so I can't edit it
or delete it. It doesn't appear to be in filezilla.xml,
and I'm not sure what to look for in the windows
registry.

Update:

I figured out that my original problem was due to a bad
password. However, I still do not know where the SSL
keys are being stored.

I see your mixing SSL and SSH, however SSH and SSL are
two completely different things.
Back to topic:

  1. SSH Host keys are stored in the registry under

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\Ssh
HostKeys, as FileZilla's SFTP part is derived from PuTTY.

  1. SSL certificates are stored in the file "Trusted Certs.dat" in

the FileZilla folder.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
