Logging into Linux through SSH locks up machine
I'm trying to login to a linux box using SSH from my Windows machine. I tried using Servers Alive and now Putty.
Here's the problem. I can remotely get to the linux machine and to the login prompt, but after entering my credentials, the machine locks and freezes the connection immediately, before displaying anything else. Then I have to close out and start over again. I know it's recognizing my credentials because if I type the wrong password it will tell me I'm doing so and give me access denied. It only freezes once the correct password is entered. This is happening on a few linux machines that I have, however, there are linux boxes that I can connect to also which makes it more confusing to me.
