    Default Weird msdos problem

    I have a weird problem while I try to sign a jar with msdos.
    Everytime I type for example this in msdos:
    C:\> keytool -genkey -keystore myKeystore -alias myself
    and press enter, it will ask me for my password. But cannot type. All I can do is press enter, when i press enter three times it will say to many failures.

    It happens every time. Does anyone know anything about this problem or another way to sign a jar file?

    What do you mean you can't type? Do you mean you can't see the characters you are typing? That wouldn't be surprising if you are trying to enter a password?

    "But cannot type. All I can do is press enter."
    That kinda means that when I press a character on the keyboard nothing happens on the screen.. so no *** appear, no spaces appear. Nothing, it just looks like I am not typing at all..

    That is the default behavior on most shells these days. Outputting stars is less secure because peeping toms can see how many characters were entered.

    I'm sorry, but you never thought to at least try entering your password, even if you didn't see anything?

    My mistake.. I did try, but then it said re-enter your password. I was already thinking, hey how strange that the letters don't show up. Then that message of re-type yuour pass came, and I thought someting had gona wrong and I tried again, but still I couldn't see my characters. Sorry.
