Disconnected: Server protocol violation: unexpected SSH2_MSG_UNIMPLEMENTED packet

On one (not both) of my Windows 7 Pro computers, when I try to start a PuTTY session from within WinSCP, I get the error: "Disconnected: Server protocol violation: unexpected SSH2_MSG_UNIMPLEMENTED packet". On that same computer, I used to get the same message using standalone PuTTY, but fixed it using the solution I found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tywQX5wTKvQ, which involves changing the priority of the KEX algorithms so that "Diffie-Hellman group 14" is at the top and "Diffie-Hellman group exchange" is demoted to third place. But this solution apparently isn't available for PuTTY invoked from WinSCP. Is there a fix for this that works for WinSCP?

~ Thanks in advance, Ken

Aren't you using some old version of PuTTY? Because I cannot understand how come that you can connect with WinSCP, but not with PuTTY.

Anyway, even in WinSCP you can configure preference of KEX algorithms.

WinSCP will then propagate that settings to PuTTY.
