I am trying to connect to my webserver via ssh but I can't. When I insert the password nothing happens. This is what I see:

# ssh's password: 

Why? In iptables there are no rules. Please help :(

I have tried with a wifi connection of my friend and it does work!! So is it a router problem?

What I have to do?

works for me. can you try again using one of the debugging options (-v or -vv or -vvv) and post the result? also, which version of ubuntu are you using? – quack quixote May 11 '10 at 12:19
Well. Try using the simple "ssh" method, and also, you won't see your password inserted. Just type it blindly and hit enter. At least an error should come up. – Shiki May 11 '10 at 12:21
yes this is what I see: I am using ubuntu 9.04. – xrobot May 11 '10 at 12:45
I dont see any problem with it ^^". Try the -vvv. Maybe we'll see more. – Shiki May 11 '10 at 12:48
ok this is it: Thanks :) – xrobot May 11 '10 at 12:51

Have you tried pushing enter after typing your password? The password does not show up when you use SSH...

yes I have pushed enter many times but doesn't work. – xrobot May 11 '10 at 12:25
Do you get an error? – May 11 '10 at 13:00
I see you are troubleshooting in the comments above. Disregard my answer. – May 11 '10 at 13:04
