Core Shell doesn’t let me connect to a host anymore with the message “WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!” I’m sure that I’m connecting to the correct host. How do I remove the old key so I can connect?
The remote side might has changed its identity, could you please set log level to Debug3 and paste the log here?
It’s possible that the computer is using the same IP address of an older host. Here’s the log (I anonymized hostnames and IP addresses):

Could you please enable system default
ssh_config andknown_hosts` configurations and try again?
If you still not in luck, please execute the command in terminal and send back the output:
ssh -vvv -o CheckHostIP=yes -p 8122 **@curiosity.**.com
I just removed the host entry from the
know_hosts file, and now I can connect again. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
BTW, I seem to remember that SSH Shell would just display a warning but let me proceed in the same circumstance. Is it possible to configure Core Shell to do the same?
It depends, if both host ip and identity were changed, Core Shell would consider it’s not safe to accept the key and continue connecting.
