I know nothing about hummingbird socks, but I suggest you try to enable verbose login in PuTTy so you can possibly see where it fails. I don't use MS Windows, but I think you can enable logging in the Session tab of PuTTy and then browse the logfile. It might be that you are using the wrong ethernet/network type in your virtual machine that's blocking communication or you have to enable some other password authentication in putty or the sshd_config file on the server.
