I can't fetch finger print from my host

Damian Tokarczyk April 15, 2019

I have hosting in, and I trying to connect but I get `Unable to fetch fingerprints, check host SSH connection and try again`.  

I don't have root permission to host, and I log in to via `ssh login@host`. How can I fetch fingerprint?

Hi Damian,

Thanks for reaching out here.

If you have created an SSH key in your user home, you can retrieve the fingerprint using the command:

ssh-keygen -lf ~/.ssh/

Kind Regards,

Thanks! I forgot about port, and `host:port`  eg. `123.123.123:8080` works!
