Hiya,
So in recent weeks I haven't been able to connect to a SFTP site from one of the machines we use for SFTP access. We receive the same error everything which is: "The server rejected SFTP connection, but it listens for FTP Connections". We have tried connecting via FTP connections as well but receive the error "The server rejected connection". Since then we have been in touch with the host and they said it was not there end. But some reason we are not getting prompted for the host key at all from the Server. Here are some logs from what happens below:
