    Hi I have followed this link to install OpenSSH on to my iPhone 4, iOS 4.3.5.

    When I SSH to the iphone, I got this error message:
    debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
    debug1: Connecting to localhost [::1] port 22.
    debug1: fd 19 clearing O_NONBLOCK
    debug1: Connection established.
    debug1: identity file /var/mobile/Applications/64676C7E-C5E8-4420-A0AB-C20475049665/Documents/keys/.ssh/.ssh/identity type -1
    debug1: identity file /var/mobile/Applications/64676C7E-C5E8-4420-A0AB-C20475049665/Documents/keys/.ssh/.ssh/id_rsa type -1

    ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

    How can I fix it? thanks in advance.

    Chances are something happened to your jailbreak. If you are on a Mac, you can try wiping out your known_hosts file, but otherwise you are probably stuck reinstalling iOS and re-doing the jailbreak.

    Wiping out the known_hosts on a Mac:

    Open a terminal and type

    rm -f ~/.ssh/known_hosts
