Thank you very much for this very useful app and the ongoing support!

It's a very good idea to implement a "SSH known hosts key check". Unfortunately, it is not working correctly for me. When I try to start a frequently used connection, I get a "Unknown host key" notification with the three options:
- Cancel
- Always
- Connect

Cancel: When I click "Cancel" the app continues anyhow with the first authentication attempt and wants me to enter the password. When I enter the password I am asked again about the "Unknown host key". I can continue the "cancel" and "enter password" game three times only then the connection is interrupted with the message "Invalid credentials".
The connection should be stopped as soon as I click "Cancel" the first time.

Always: Well, this circumvents the "SSH known hosts key check", I guess. I haven't tried it yet.

Connect: This proceeds to the authentication and with the correct credentials I can log into the server. BUT the host key is not stored or at least not found when I want to open the same connection later again. I always get the "Unknown host key" notification.
Therefore, this feature is not working at least in my installation.

Last actualization 20.04.2020 via Google Play Store.
Android 7.1.2 on Fairphone2
Kernel 3.4.0-perf-g7c668d5 jenkins@slave06 #1
Build-Number 19.11.2

I'm happy to provide more information if needed!

With always, it should save it locally (in app private folder). Maybe a problem with the key itself, could you contact support(at)lysesoft.com and provide a temporary testing account so we could try to check what's wrong?
