Regarding the password field:

You won’t get the green mark when you have entered the password correctly, because in the new system there is no way for the client to know that the password is correct. (Except that he is allowed to connect).

The way the old system worked was that the server had a publicly available checksum for the password, which the client could check to see if it was correct. Right now the client just sends the password to the server. You should get a popup if you entered the password incorrectly and press ok though.
