What is the syntax for storing a host key in the INI file?

Hi,

I'm using the .NET DLL as part of an application which access servers via SFTP.

When the app is directed to a server I can get the Host Key Fingerprint value. I wish to cache this value in the WinSCP.INI file so the next connection doesn't need to have the key specified.

Can someone give me an example of the INI file syntax for caching the key please?

I've checked the documentation and the forums and know it can be done, just not the specifics of how it's done :-(

Thanks

....I've got it now thanks everyone.

I discovered the export settings feature and was able to create an ini file.

The syntax I wanted was
[SshHostKeys]
rsa2@22:xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx=0x23,0xbd7046938ec......
