Winscp failing to connect from Win2016 Server

Trying to setup Winscp to run from batch file and upload file to vendor sftp site. Simple batch file:
start c:\winscp\winscp.exe /console /script=upload2.txt /log="g:\upload.log"

the script file has this in it:
open sftp://USERNAME:Password@VENDOR SITE/ -hostkey="ssh-dss 1024 9yhLnt/T9tfWZc10LbZsWefPPNMp3cDlqULcyOXdefE="

This works fine from a regular workstations running Windows 7,8 or 10.
The log file from the server gives me this:

How do I get around the Software Connection Abort?

I've change the real info to protect the innocent with Username, Password, Vendor Site, Vendor Site IP address

Any and All help would be appreciated.

Re: RE; Re: Winscp failing to connect from Win2016 Server

Does it work, when you run the batch file manually in a normal Windows session?

I think it has something to do with the key exchange. This is the log of the workstation where it is successful. Compare the logs. It dies at the key exchange.

No, it dies well before the key exchange. No data ever arrives from the server.
It's likely a firewall issue.
Can you SSH to that server from the Win2016 Server any way? WinSCP GUI? Any other SSH/SFTP client?

OK, you need to contact your network administrator.
