I do not understand.
Are you asking how to stop WinSCP from asking user to verify the SSH host key? Or how to provide the host key in advance, so that WinSCP won't have to ask?

Enable checkbox for current connection
Just click Login and Connect to the server.
I want to not see a pop-up warning window.
"Continue connecting to an unknown server and add its host key to a cache?"
I have to press YES every time many times a day

winscp.exe /hostkey=*

ArtemNerin, bro, I understand your pain.
I wish I could never see that warning. Security on local addresses doesn't bother me at all. Unfortunately, I have to suffer.

winscp.com -hostkey=* works fine
winscp.exe /hostkey=* doesn't work when using the GUI.

And when you use a tunnel and "Open in PuTTY" with port 5000X, you always get a warning. Always. There is no way to disable or bypass.

But anyway winSCP is the best tool for Windows. Good luck and life to the team.
