Issue connecting via SFTP to dropbox using Powershell

I'm successfil using the standard winSCP app in connecting and uploading files, but have issues connecting with the following code:
# Load WinSCP .NET assembly
Add-Type -Path "c:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCPnet.dll"

# Set up session options
$sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions -Property @{
    Protocol = [WinSCP.Protocol]::Sftp
    HostName = "dropbox.xxxx.com"
    UserName = "xxxxxx"
    Password = "xxxxxxx"
    SshHostKeyFingerprint = "xxxxxxxxxxx"
    
}
$sessionOptions.AddRawSettings("TryAgent", "0") 
$sessionOptions.AddRawSettings("FSProtocol", "2")

$session = New-Object WinSCP.Session

Log file attached

Can you post a log file from WinSCP GUI too?

The logs are from different machines. Can you use WinSCP GUI on the same machine that runs your code? With the same local account?

Thanks for your help. Basically the SFTP receiver was limiting the IP's that could connect. I didn't realize that since it worked from *my* PC and thought it was a code issue.
