The usual joke here is that Windows is expecting encrypted passwords and OS X is offering plain passwords, or the other way round. There's a hint about this at

As to the "scriptmtu" issue (actually mine downloaded under a different name -- you might need to check that, and perhaps "echo <filename>" to confirm that it looks like a script and isn't some junk), the easiest thing is just to change into the directory where the script is (cd <FullPathToDirectory> -- and, as you've discovered, you can drag the directory from the Finder to fill out that path) and then type "chmod a+x" and then <space> and then your dot-slash-filename. A handy tip to make sure you're spelling the filename right is to put in the first three or four letters and then hit <Tab>.
