You probably missed the note from webmaster.
I think that should explain what you're seeing.
As a result of the migration of the dev.eclipse.org server, you are
required to update your SSH known_hosts file. When you attempt to
connect to dev.eclipse.org, you will be warned of a possible attack.
Eclipse will also tell you where your known_hosts file is (in Windows,
typically in C:\Documents and Settings\yourid\ssh\known_hosts and
typically ~/.ssh/known_hosts on *nix systems).
Simply edit this file and remove the line that starts with
"dev.eclipse.org". After saving this file, close Eclipse and
again. You should be able to connect.
If you are unable to establish a connection with dev.eclipse.org, you
may need to ask your systems administrator to allow outgoing ssh
connections to 184.108.40.206, dev.eclipse.org's new IP address.
If you have problems connecting, please let me know directly at
I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.

[wtp-dev] Strange Dialog
I am seeing this strange dialog when trying to connect to dev.eclipse.org
this evening. I was able connect fine on Friday. Has host name or something
changed on the cvs server over the weekend that we need to react to connect
to the repo ?
