The server I need to connect to provided me with their public key and fingerprint.

When I try to connect to the server first time, WinSCP is saying it's an unknown server, and responds with the server's fingerprint.

The fingerprint is different from the fingerprint given to me. If I click Yes, naturally the host key is also different from the public key given to me.

So, how do I manually add to fingerprint and public key given to me?

In what sense is it different? Is the key of a different type? Or is it the same type, but different hash? Show us both keys.
