sftp connection to HUAWEI S5720 fail with : Signature from server's host key is invalid

I am using WinSCP version 6.3.3 (Build 14916 2024-0416) on windows 11.
I followed the Huawei doc in order to enable SFTP on the switch HUAWEI S5720 other connection to HPE switch work correctly.

The problem is with the host key (one line from the log file i atthached) :
Doing Diffie-Hellman key exchange using 2048-bit modulus and hash SHA-1 with standard group "group14"
T tried to generate a 1024 bit key in case WinSCP cannot handle this key but RSA key in Huawei can only be 2048 bits, see below
[SW_WH1_RK_A]rsa local-key-pair create 
The key name will be: SW_WH1_RK_A_Host
% RSA keys defined for SW_WH1_RK_A_Host already exist.
Confirm to replace them? [y/n]:y
The range of public key size is (2048 ~ 2048). 
NOTES: If the key modulus is greater than 512, 
       it will take a few minutes.
Input the bits in the modulus[default = 2048]:
Generating keys...
The WinSCP log level 2 advance debug mode is here below

Looking forward to know about what kind of error I am doing.

Thanks in advance.

Can you connect to your SFTP server using any other SFTP/SSH client? Post its log file, if you can.

Re: sftp connection to HUAWEI S5720 fail with : Signature from server's host key is invalid

YES sir and thank you for helping. The connection tried with PuTTY gave me the same result WinSCP gave because I think the engine of WinSCP is PuTTY.

But I attach to you all the log file in order for you to better understand the problem.
My final target is to use the WinSCP Library to download the configuration file from several network switch using a PowerShell program written by:
#Created by: James Preston of The Queen's College, Oxford
#Version: 1.0 on 02/11/2015 17:05
#Website: myworldofit.net
That I have only partially modified to meet my need.
Anyway find the attached PuTTY log file.
Thank you again.
