The issue is likely that the protocol your ssh client is using does not match the one used on the server, r the connection method allowed is not what is being attempted. Run ssh -vvvv username@host and see where the break occurs.
I.e. the server is configured to only allow key based or certificate based authentication, while your attempt is to use username/password interactive login.
The debug connection attempt referenced above will shed light on what the issue could be.
This is a general statement applicable to ssh and should translate similarly through aid platform as it would apply to other unix/Linux platforms with which I am more familiar.
