The problem: I connect to Termux on my Android phone from my iPad with Blink shell, but am asked to verify the host key every time I connect, because my phone sets a random IP each time.
E.g. first it's 192.168.43.23, then 192.168.43.180.
My (partial) solution: disable host key checking for my Android hotspot's subnet in Blink.
In Blink shell, create a file "
.ssh/ with these contents (change the subnet to match yours if it differs):
I edited the file in
vim and then copied it into Blink's folder using Apple's Files, then moved it into
.ssh/ from within Blink.
(Thanks to https://www.shellhacks.com/disable-ssh-host-key-checking/ for the solution)
You'll no longer be asked to verify the host key every time you connect to Termux. Horray!
