another server on the same LAN.
When I use ssh on another system to log in to the new instance of sshd:
ssh -v -v -v -l mark new_server
I can see it go through the process of trying to verify new_server's identity.
That process fails -- which is expected, because
new_server is an unknown host at this point.
What follows is weird, however: I don't get asked if I want to log on to
new_server (i.e., store its signature in the known_hosts
Why would that happen?

Re: Not being asked to verify footprint on unknown server
I finally figured out what was wrong: I goofed in configuring sshd to run under
xinetd and tcp wrappers, and it turns out the client
machine I was using to try to connect to the new sshd server was munged up. When
I reverted to an unwrapped standalone sshd --
accessed from a "good" client -- the problem was solved.
