Console doesn't work on Avaya G450

Hello everyone

so basically i'm been trying to connect to the console of an Avaya G450.
I'm using putty to get the display.

But it doesn't seem like i'm being able to input anything from my keyboard. Is there anything special I need to download or have to be able to configure the Avaya?

And sorry if I'm double posting of anything. I'm still new in forums and even more new to Avaya.
