In case Scott's suggestion on where to find stty doesn't help, the thing that jumps out at me is

I don't use SSH on i, but do use it to log in to my Linux machines at home from time to time. The first time I connect from A to B, I see this message on the client. In a nutshell, each SSH server identifies itself with a key to protect from man-in-the-middle attacks. This usually only has to be answered once, in which case the SSH client stores the key in a file called known_hosts. This is usually in the .ssh in the user's home directory on Linux, again not sure about i.

If you see this message when trying to connect to an SSH server to which you've connected successfully in the past, you should ask the administrator of that server why their key has changed. If they don't think it has, there is a chance someone is trying to intercept your communication.
