How does Putty ask? As first thing after login that needs to be entered? Just typical 'password' prompt, or some other text is shown? Putty always asks for password if I'm correct, before it initiates connection.


puTTY asks like this after I give the IP address and hit OK, in the terminal window:

"login as: "

And after I give the username, it says:

"user@host's password:"

and then it connects as usual with the welcome message from the SSH server. Since the prompts are inside the terminal window, I thought the messages are based on the server's response. I, though, see your point that this prompt is something within puTTY before a connection with the server is established.
