UPDATE:
It turned out the configuration of sshd on host2 wont allow password
login. Thanks to people answered this.

====================================================================

Scenario:
Working with a company for my college project.
I need to use PuTTy to SSH into host1 first, and from there SSH into host2 (see below).
I was given a username and password on host2.

I do not have access of host2 at all, so I have no knowledge of its sshd_config.

This is what happened when I was trying to SSH into host2 from host1 :

[email protected]:~$ ssh -v host2

and my /home/ff/.ssh/config :

I wonder is there anything I can do before go to the company.
