Problems connecting with putty


I was wondering where the best place to go to learn more about Putty. I am now having a hard time getting it to take my password. It worked fine a few times; however, I was trying to open another team computer and could not get it to open so I changed some of the settings and now I am having trouble with both machines.

I believe putty can take command line arguments (although I have no Windows to try it out). Something like
Code:
putty user@hostname
should give you a password prompt when launched from a terminal (or whatever it is called in Windows).
Code:
putty hostname -l username
should work, too.

Thank you very much! I will go try it right now and let you know how it goes. Thanks again!

I was able to get a prompt for my passcode but it would not take the passcode for some reason.

It will work by using full path of putty software's location in your Windows Run prompt:
Code:
C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\putty
OR
C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\putty.exe
OR
C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\putty.exe username@hotname
If you wish to learn more about putty, go through it's online documentation, follow here and here.
