PuTTY SSH password not working

There are only four potential problem I can think of (most of which have been covered already):

You're not connecting to the right server.

    If you're using an IP address, check it.If you're using a host name, verify that it's pointing to the right IP address and/or try the IP address instead.

You're not entering the right username.

    The fact that you have root access doesn't mean you can actually log in as root. It only means that you have an account with root privileges (normally via sudo).If you're not entering the username manually, make sure Connection → Data → Auto-login username is actually set to root.

You're not entering the right password.

    Check the password you're entering.Verify that CapsLock is disabled.Verify that PuTTY uses the proper keyboard layout.If you use AltGr, make sure Terminal → Keyboard → AltGr acts as Comopse key isn't checked.If none of the above works, clear the field Connection → Data → Auto-login username (assuming it is set) and enter the password in the username field to verify it gets entered correctly.

Root access is disabled.

Some SSH servers can disable SSH logins for certain users and may even disable root logins by default.If you're using Open SSH server, you have to edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and make sure that it doesn't contain one of the following lines:PermitRootLogin no PermitRootLogin without-password Both result in a simple Access denied. error, although they permit you to enter the password. The latter only allows root logins when authenticating using public keys.To permit root logins, remove the corresponding line or replace it with the following:

PuTTY SSH Windows

PuTTY SSH port number

Putty ssh password
