My favourite chess problem

Many years ago, searching for the Internet over chess problem, I bumped into a very interesting piece.
Find it on the bottom as a FEN row, clicking on it the board will also appear.

The task is: white mates in one!

Can't be too hard, I thought, but scrolling over the possibilities the solution just didn't come up.
I check everything once more, then again, and again, and once I found another way that was hidden for me before. The solution also hid there. It became my favourite chess problem then, but of course, it's true, there are many many beautiful problems out there.

2N4P/P1k5/P1PN1PnP/4R3


This was the first problem I submitted to the server. Some players can solve it, some don't. Some believe there is no valid solution.
So, check this problem if you want. And enjoy.

Acknowledgments

By default, the server sends back an acknowledgment message replying to every incoming messages.
It says the moves have been successfully taken, or if an error occurred with them.
When we take many moves a day the many answer messages can be annoying. There is a setting, if set, the server sends back replies only if something wrong happened with the move. If it could be taken in order, no reply will be sent back, only in case of error.
This is the Reduced Email Traffic setting, which prevents us from getting many annoying acknowledgment messages.
