comment Should I expect the key fingerprint as it appears in Putty key generation to match the server I am connecting to?
Agree with @grawity - if you have concerns contact the server operator and ask for their public key fingerprint (don't send them what you received, check what they send you against what you're seeing).

Remember that everyone has their own public/private key pair. The key you gave the server is your public key, to prove your identity. The server is offering you its public key during connection negotiation to encrypt the connection for secure shell. Two different purposes, two different key pairs.

comment How to check if system has internet connection and can send email (via Shell)?
See below. If you can communicate via telnet on port 25 you can connect via SMTP - if you can't, you can't.

Are you sure you meant FireZilla? FileZilla comes with XAMPP and is an excellent SFTP/file server solution. All I saw for FireZilla (besides Pokemon) is a XUL download manager project on SourceForge.

Yep - Mercury Mail will run as a service and do the basics, enough to simulate what you need.

comment Computer makes odd noise. Replace almost every component. Computer still makes odd noise.
Didn't see the comment about the CPU fan - agree with Philip. Remove CD or unplug the optical. Also maybe check your speakers - a loose audio connection might be grounding occasionally.
