why cannot I type password in putty? [closed]

When I open a session in putty to connect to the server, the console asks:

login as: so I type root or another username

then the console ask username@ip.ip.ip.ip's password: From here I can’t type anything except Entry which brings me to Access denied, all the other keys don’t output anything in the console.


The terminal isn’t echoing the password or stars in place of the password. Try ignoring what you see and just enter the password. It is very common in unix to turn off echoing when entering passwords.
