Question

I can't login into Console

  • Posted November 2, 2014

I have ubuntu 14.04 with LAMP installed whenever I access control I type ssh root@128.199.62.70 & press Enter then it asks password but when I try to enter password nothing happens means nothing gets typed & when I press enter it says login incorrect !

joefozmans is spot-on with their comment. SSH (and many other linux programs) do not show passwords as you type them. This is actually a security feature that protects you from people looking over your shoulder. :)

Hi there! Just so you know, the cursor doesn’t move at password prompts in Linux. Don’t worry though, the characters you type should still be registered.
