If you never had to deal with this file before, it's probably easiest to simply delete it. (Yes, I'm serious).

A permanent solution is to make the device present the same key whether booted to diags or main, by copying the dropbear key files from the diags partition to the main partition, or vice versa.

If this is happening not because you're connecting to a single device in different modes, but indeed to different devices, then synchronize the keys across the devices, or give each device a unique IP address (in addition to the above).

The .201 is probably your computer. The Kindle is .244.

PS: Just before this gets out of hand (and I hope that this notice is actually not needed): please note that this is the "Kindle developer's corner", not a "Linux newbies" forum. If you attempt to use SSH, you're supposed to know what you are doing, or to be willing to read the appropriate documentation. There are plenty of tutorials online on how to get started with the command line on Linux.
