I'm using Windows PuTTY to access my Linux Server running Ubuntu Server 14.04
I've successfully created an RSA key with password, logged in and placed it into
~/.ssh/authorized_keys. PuTTY is configured to use this private key.
SSH Handshake works on first try and server asks for my RSA password. I insert it and he says that it's the wrong password.
My Password contains numbers, special characters and german Umlaute (ÄÖÜ) (I'm german which means that I have these keys on my keyboard)
I suspect that it either doesn't transmit my Umlaute (mutated vowel) or that Linux and/or SSH doesn't support these characters
Does anyone know what I can do about it?
I would love having numbers, currency characters and Umlaute in my Password because they're considered very safe.
My password isn't very long - Maybe SSH has a minimum char amount?
(It's short because I want to type it fast while making it hard for bruteforce attacks due to rare characters)
Do I need to configure SSH and/or Linux in a special way? My Ubuntu Server is completely in English but the server shouldn't be surprised by these characters because I set the keyboard layout to german on setup and it worked fine.
I hope that this is enough information.
Would be cool if you guys know a solution.
