I'm trying to get WinSCP to work with Nortel Network's Passport 8600. They support SSH2/SCP 3DES but for some reason I can't get WinSCP to work. All I get is this:

. The server's host key is not cached in the registry. You have no guarantee that the server is the computer you think it is. The server's key fingerprint is: ssh-dss 1024 78:41:5a:79:21:b8:f5:63:7f:8f:fa:89:d4:6c:04:10
. If you trust this host, press Yes. To connect without adding host key to the cache, press No. To abandon the connection press Cancel.
. Continue connecting and add host key to the cache? ()
. Host key fingerprint is:

Can you connect with Putty? Have you tried to force /bin/bash on SCP tab of login dialog? Have you tried SFTP? Have you read Requirements?
