the password may not be displayed for security reasons. when you enter a password into a cisco device, the password will not show. did you try and type the correct password and hit enter?

It won't display for security. it is not good interface, but it is actually there.

So just type in your password and hit enter. It will connect you

or you can download ssh -the free version- it has very nice interface and display **** in the pass field.

that is true, it won't move.
it will just set there, make sure to type in your password correctly and carefully, any hit will be counted.


>> using keyboard-interactive authentication
it just mean that you enter you password using the keyboard  -to authonticate yourself.


hope this helps!
