Re: It says that it's going to store a certificate.

Thanks. That lead me to figuring it out. For others who just want the answer, I think it's this:
The certificate is NOT stored. However, the fingerprint of the certificate IS stored in the winscp.ini file under [HttpsCertificates]. If you need to connect using the WinSCPnet.dll, then use the SshHostKeyFingerprint property of the session object to specify the fingerprint.

WinSCP does store only a fingerprint of the certificate.

I pressed 'Yes' and the connection now works but I have a program using the dll that needs the same certificate. How does IT access the certificate?
Thanks.

Have WinSCP GUI generate a code template for you:

It says that it's going to store a certificate.

Using WebDAV, I got a dialog warning, "The server's certificate is not known. You have no guarantee that the server is the computer you think it is."

With options stating, "If you trust this certificate, press Yes. To connect without storing certificate, press No. To abandon the connection press Cancel.
Continue connecting and store the certificate?"

Which seems to imply that WinSCP is going to store the certificate. So, where is it stored?

Re: Where does WINSCP store a downloaded certificate ?

WinSCP does not store the certificate anywhere. You can see some information on Server and Protocol Information Dialog.

Where does WINSCP store a downloaded certificate ?

Is it possible to view the certificate that it downloads it and even convert it into a .pem format ?

thanks
