I used the "integartion part" and used PuTTY and used the pass on the password option and just changed the root password.

Also you can use asterisk unmaskers like the freeware Password Unmask (as well as many other programs) to reveal the password behind the asterisks.

Hi,

I have stored a session in WinSCP with the password. I forgot the password and now I need to telnet into that server. I could do that through Command > Open session in PuTTy; but, my problem is I need to change the password now(according to administrator's settings). The telnet server asks for the old password first. How can I recover the password from the stored session in WinSCP.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

However I'm not sure if this is gone help you.
You are obviously trying to connect to iPod/iPhone. So this may be different kind of problem than forgoten password.
