Server´s host key is invalid

Cannot connect to a server by SFTP. WinSCP shows the following error:
Server's host key is invalid
How can I solve the issue? I try to connect to another server and works correctly
I´m using WinSCP GUI version 5.17.10 over Windows 10 Pro

Re: Server´s host key is invalid

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. 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.

Can you login with any other SSH/SFTP client? If you can, please post its verbose log file.

How's that relevant? I did ask you, "if can you login with any other SSH/SFTP client"? Not to any other SSH/SFTP server.

So then please contact your server administrator. This is not a WinSCP issue, but a problem with your server.
