In Windows you can just download the putty application no need to install.

In ubuntu, as root run: apt-get install putty /
sudo apt-get install putty "if non root"

On any unix/linux you don't usually need ubuntu, because unix's terminals already ssh terminal capacities, and ssh application is also included by default.

Its asking for password and when I enter password it says "permission denied,please try again"

parparovCommented:
Either the password you type is incorrect (it is case-sensitive!), or you do not have login on the target server, or password logins on that server were disabled.

You must contact the admin of the remote host to see why the login is failing.

No, editplus is a windows software. You can install wine and then run it under wine; alternative editors are available on UNIX: gedit, nedit, bluefish and so on.

If it is a standard linux server on the remote, you achieve it by typing

Open in new window

at the remote prompt
