Grabbing the public key is really easy on linux: from the command line,
run the command:
ssh user at host
This gets you a mini-lecture about man-in-the middle attacks, shows the
target hostname and IP number and asks whether you really want to make
this connection. Answer 'yes' and the public key is copied into
$HOME/.ssh/known_hosts followed by the normal prompt for a password.
After that you just get the password prompt until/unless the OS on the
remote host is reinstalled, which causes the connection to be refused
because the public key no longer matches: the first thing sshd, the SSH
server, does after a clean install is to generate the host's public key.
The recovery is to edit $HOME/.ssh/known_hosts and remove all lines that
start with that host name - there will be either one or two of them.
Then repeat the command that failed and you'll get the mini-lecture and
be asked whether you want connect as described above.
