I was asked to change password, I don’t know how to do next. whenever i press ‘enter’, the pputty is forced out.

Thanks for help!

You enter (type in) a new password then hit the enter key.

It looks like they want the current password. Then enter a new password when asked.

What computer operating system are you using? Have you tried to disable SSH access, then re-enable it through the My Cloud Dashboard then tried accessing the My Cloud via SSH again?
