Address ..*.* maps to ec2---*-*, but this does not map back to the address - POSSIBLE BREAK-IN ATTEMPT!

I keep getting this when I try to log-in to my remote server. I have it set for key authentication and when this error comes through, I still have to push through the password. I want to use this for automated Git pulls, and I can't have this kind of error message. anybody know what is going on here and how to fix it?

Give us the real error message so we can verify the situation for ourselves. – womble Mar 24 '12 at 23:27

Set CheckHostIp to no may work in your ssh conf, depending on your version.
