SSH Login: No Promt for User ID from Linux

The Telnet client is Tera Term. To connect the IP and port (22 for my host 1&1) are used. The terminal ID is VT100 (default).

The connection seems to be made. However, no prompt for user ID. All that is displayed is

SSH-2.0-OpenSSH

with the cursor below. I have never done this before, so I'm probably missing something obvious.

Please let me know if more info is needed.

Thank you.

That means you're not in SSH mode.  If you were, it would negotiate for a secure connection and you'd get the login prompt.  Which Linux is the user trying to log in from?  Ubuntu?  RedHat?

It's a PC running Windows XP used to log into a Linux server. I don't know what it is. I'm browsing their control panel, but don't see what Linux it is.

Then try PuTTY http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/, that's what I use.

Hi,

you're obviously using telnet (TTERMPRO) to reach port 22, which is wrong.
You must use TTSSH instead of TTERMPRO.

You are all correct. I'm now using Bitvise xTerm with complete success. I tried Putty and it connected, but I could not type my password at the prompt. No doubt some misbehavior on my PC.

Thanks to all.
