Hi SOTL. Fish uses SSH. When you connect to another machine for the first 
time, a key is created in /home/user-name/.ssh/known_hosts. I have had 
problems with this. I have many distro's on one of my two machines. Some had 
the same IP address. I wondered why I had problems connecting to distro's 
with the same IP address, until I discovered this file. Now I have made sure 
to have unique addresses for all the distro's that run on this machine. I 
wonder if, as your use of Konqueror using Fish to connect to the other 
machine has created a key which is is specific to using Konqueror. I would 
suggest removing the key in /home/user-name/.ssh/known_hosts, then trying to 
connect with Kbear. If this doesn't work. Using Konqueror, fish directed to 
the other machine, will simply create a new key, and you should be able to 
access the other machine again from Konqueror. 

Incidentally, I don't have Kbear. Where did you find it? Nigel.

ps: I'm on FC2 at the moment.
