WinSCP works with IP address but not name of server

Hello

I'm using WinSCP with version 5.13. When I try to connect from the GUI to a server over SFTP port 22 it only works when I enter the IP address, but not with the server name. DNS resolution works without any issue on the server. I have no problem to connect to other apps like putty with name. Anyone has the same issue?

Regards

Please attach a complete WinSCP session log file as well as PuTTY event log.

Hello Martin

The putty log is not meaningful, I have two identical servers (one works WinSCP with name one not) I attach both log files. It seems WinSCP is not using DNS servers.
