## hostkey error when trying to script

Hi everyone
I am new to scripting so please forgive my noobness
I am able to connect when I am in command line using
open scp://user:password@xxx.xx.xxx.xxx/ -hostkey="ssh xxx"""
I then ran another command put which copied the folders over fine.

I then try to automate via script using .bat file however the logs show
Host key does not match configured key xxx-xxx
Attempt to close connection due to fatal exception:
Host key fingerprint is ssh-rsa xxx-xxx-
(Exception) **Host key does not match configured key xxx-xxx"
I am not sure why the key would be different from what I entered via command line, can anyone help?

To generate the session log file, use /log=C:\path\to\winscp.log command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
