"Connecting to" and "Connected to" Issue

Can anyone please explain the root cause ?!
I am connecting from windows 10 onto a linux server.

I am connecting a site but surprised to notice unexpected directory listing.
Looking into the "message log" I have noticed that the server I am "Connected to" is not the one I am "Connecting to"
This explain the unexpected directory listing but how and why it happen ?!

This is what I have copied from the message log window ...
For security I changed the servers names

Status: Connecting to
Response: fzSftp started
Command: open "" 22
Command: Pass: ***
Status: Connected to
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: pwd
Response: Current directory is: "/mywork/user"
Command: ls
It insist either using quick connecting or using the site manager
I tried uninstall and re-install the latest - yet same result

If I am trying to use command line it works ...

Do you by chance have a saved session in PuTTY with one hostname as the session name, with the other hostname configured as the hostname to connect to?

Hi, :D
I checked it out.
You are fully correct.
Once I set properly the PuTTy session - issue resolved.

Much appreciated for the quick and prompt answer.

Can you further explain why this is shared between FileZilla and PuTTy ?

FileZilla's SFTP support is managed by a modified PuTTY component (psftp). Although being modified, it is still PuTTY and shares the configuration. For that reason, it can make use of PuTTY's Pageant, and things stored there can be used by FileZilla.
