SFTP Connection Problem - Fetch 5.7.6 (OS 10.12.5) (2 posts)

    When attempting connection to SFTP server, getting message:

    "SFTP connection to “xxxxxxxxxx” could not be opened because the connection to the SFTP server could not be established or was lost. (Try again, or contact the server administrator to verify that you have the correct hostname, username, password, and authentication method, and that the server is running.
    Server responded: “Unable to negotiate with port 22: no matching host key type found. Their offer: ssh-dss"

    Using another FTP client, I received a message about an "unknown host key" but was allowed the option to 'trust' and then connect.

    I went to the .ssh folder but there was no 'known hosts file' to edit or delete.

    Any thoughts?

    Sorry. Just found the the solution to my problem in a post from October 2016.

    It's working for me now.
