This is quite strange from my Ubuntu machine using a terminal and command line I have no problem to login and initiate a SSH session but for years I have also used Putty on wins well, on three different machines using putty (and even another one that I since removed and cannot remember its name!) my admin password is always rejected.
What do you think is going on? thanks for any input.
<edit reason> Adding to post</edit> This is not happening on my dedicated server, but on a very decent VPS with total root control

There are two ways to enter a password over an SSH connection. In the simplest method the password is sent in clear text over the line. In the other method a challenge response system is used to verify the password. Your wins client may not be configured to use the password authentication method accepted by the server.

@encyclo You might be on something, even in Linux if I cd var/log/faillog I got a denied permission so maybe something is set with only limited permissions? From there I do not know how to figure it out

More of the same:
No way to get a SSH session from Winds tried a few SSH applications, tried from three machines.
Support is telling that they even tried it from outside of their network and it works. But not for me! I noticed something strange, maybe you could shed some light on that one; If I initiate a SFTP session go to etc/php.ini I can this time reach it but cannot rename, mod it or whatever I always got permission denied. On another server with the same ISP I was able to mod my php.ini from SFTP so does that fact rings a bell? thanks
