Putty SSH - Not able to type in login password

    Hey guys,

    I am having a problem logging in with SSH. I am able to type in the host I want to log into.

    Then when the black screen asks for the user name I type in root and then when it moves down to the password line I can not type in the password. I just logged into today using the same computer and details.

    You are really typing the passwords, but you can't see it on the screen. The screen will just be black. This is just a security precaution.

    Just type your password and hit enter, the typed password is not visible....

    Or copy password and paste

    paste = ctrl + insert

    when you type the password it gets typed but you can't see because it is invisible.
    just type password and press enter and you will be logged in to your server.
