I want to know how people know their password to sign into putty.
Hi. sorry about the title but I couldn't put it in other words. I started programming in linux in college and of course my tutor gave us help in signing in etc. now, i have downloaded putty and want to sign in. it says" enter login username:" thats grand because that part worked and then all of a sudden BANG! IT ASKS FOR A PASSWORD. what is the password?? how do i find this password. i have searched the length and breadth of the internet for an answer but nothing and im really annoyed. I tried changing my computers password by going on command prompt and typing in net user and then going from there to change the password. i went back to try this password out and it says "access denied" again. please please please help. all i want to do is start programming and i cant because of this :(
