I made a droplet today and then I go to log on to it with putty and i enter in root and the password emailed to me. It asks me to put in a new password which I do and then when I hit enter the window just closes out.

nevermind I am stupid, wanted me to put the temporary password in again not a new one.

Read the prompt, it asks for your current password first.

after I type login root password from email in lunch console asks me to type UNIX password I type pass from email again after notification about fail and asks me type login pass again, what I did wrong?
