Does anyone know why this happens every single time? Is it a bug with PuTTY maybe? can't find anything about it on Google

  • What version of putty are you using? Without it it is hard to tell. – tukan Sep 7 '17 at 8:55
  • Release 0.70, 64bit Windows platform :) – NaturalBornCamper Sep 7 '17 at 9:37
  • Great. Now where are you trying to connect? Server, PC, modem, switch, etc.? – tukan Sep 7 '17 at 10:39
  • On a linux server, with Debian9. I tried hitting backspace in case there were invisible characters already in there but it didn't do anything – NaturalBornCamper Sep 7 '17 at 11:20
  • I recommend running wireshark on the server or client to see what is actually sent the first time when you enter the passwd. – tukan Sep 7 '17 at 12:00
