    4. When asked to fill in a password, please copy the text you store server password (select> right click> copy) and then right-click once on a screen area of Putty.  Take a good look this way !!! Once the password text copied, bring the cursor into black screen area and RIGHT CLICK ONCE.The password will not appear on the screen but actually paste the password already there. Then press enter.
    5. After a successful login you will find a prompt in the form of root @ hostname ~ # which means the server is ready to receive commands you want to run.
