Re: Password Authentication

Some SSH servers come password authentication disabled. Find the configuration file and set 'PasswordAuthentication' to yes.

And don't forget to restart SSH server.

Re: Re: Re: Password Authentication

Are you sure the server is configure to accept password? PasswordAuthentication line in the sshd_config file should look like the following

PasswordAuthentication yes

Remember, there is no # (sharp) in front.

Also, restart the server after the change is saved.

Maybe you can try connecting to the server with Putty. See if it works.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Password Authentication

If you have enabled the Keyboard Interactive Authentication, password authentication may not work. In sshd_config, it says:

# Set this to 'yes' to enable PAM keyboard-interactive authentication
# Warning: enabling this may bypass the setting of 'PasswordAuthentication'

To access your server, just select Keyboard authentication in SSH User Authentication dialog box and it will display a window where you can type in your password.

Or you can select Keyboard Interactive for the Authentication method. This will let you bypass the SSH User Authentication dialog box. See the attached pic.

Hope you understood me.
