would also like to know, as atm i have SSH warning when connecting to mikrotiks, which i updated to 6.42.7.
"WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!".

But cannot really find it, and also google is not helpful so far.
I even tried to regenerate new one on MK, but it also doens't print out fingerprint.
Probably i would have to export them and calculate fingerprint...

Would be really great if fingerprint of internal ssh key is viewable.

So far in the last 10 years using Mikrotiks I've always been positive about which device I was connecting to. Therefore I've never bothered to check the fingerprint. Today for the first time I'm going through another company's network rather than our own and I'm not 100% sure if I'm reaching our device or one of their's. After checking for the last 25 minutes every possible menu option I've been unable to view the fingerprint. Short of exporting and downloading over a different connection, is there any other way to view the fingerprint to compare it to the one the terminal is throwing upon connection? Device is in a remote location and I'm not loving the idea of downloading the keys...
