Problem getting Putty to work
then hitting enter
and the password i chose for my root password.
and it keeps denying it.
anyone know what im doing wrong?
Also make sure you have EnableRootLogin enabled in the sshd config (enabled by default on most distros initially) and that you're actually entering the write password.
yah i just used 0's for the example
already read linodes instructions and even Putty's manual
i try using the ajax lish thing to log in and it didnt work either.
im using the same user name for the ajax lish log in right?
so i reset the lish password 5 times and still doesnt work.
couldnt find the EnableRootLogin. where is the ssd config?
I dont have to use SSH tunnels right? cant I skip that and the graphical applications part of the tutor?
Its a known issue using Putty with Ubuntu, and maybe while using windows xp idk
so had to make a change putty settings to fix the issue
now i just type in
root and hit enter and it auto fills in the ip address
then type password and it works
