security certificates ssh

I just tried to ssh into freebsd server using Putty (pocketputty actually).
I got a connection (sort of) but my Putty device put up the question
"...unknown certificate.....do you want to trust it..." or words to that
effect. Due to finger problems on the touchscreen I said NO. OOPs -
now putty gives me error messages about not being able to connect to
server. I think that my FreeBsd box is locking me out (or maybe it is
the Windows Mobile??
Can anyone tell me how to unlock this situation ?
Presumably if it is FreeBSD locking me out then there is a black mark
against my mobile's mac address??? Can I find and remedy?
Alternatively, perhaps my mobile device is not accepting the security
certificate from the server in which case I need the FBSD server to
issue a different one?
I feel a bit like the guy who left his key inside the car and locked
Any help please?
