Digi TS Portserver - Putty test serial test issue

Hi, I had my Digi portserver working fine last week - i usually use putty to connect to the virtual com port to verify the communication.

Now when I connect to the COM port, it’s asking me to login to the digi and asking for digi commands.

So it seems like instead of passing the serial communication its like im logging into the device itself. I tried updating the firmware and resetting the device.

Any suggestions?
