I have create a new VM with RHEL 6.6 but I cant login using Secure CRT (or any other ssh client) because it looks like the 'password' authentication method is not enabled somehow.
This is the Trace Options from the Secure CTR:
[LOCAL] : SENT : USERAUTH_REQUEST [none]
[LOCAL] : RECV : SSH_MSG_USERAUTH_BANNER
[LOCAL] : RECV : USERAUTH_FAILURE, continuations [publickey,keyboard-intera
[LOCAL] : SEND: Disconnect packet: Unable to authenticate using any of the configured authentication methods.
[LOCAL] : Changing state from STATE_CONNECTION to STATE_SEND_DISCONNECT
[LOCAL] : RECV: TCP/IP close
[LOCAL] : Changing state from STATE_SEND_DISCONNECT to STATE_CLOSED
[LOCAL] : Connected for 0 seconds, 891 bytes sent, 1233 bytes received
The client has disconnected from the server. Reason:
Unable to authenticate using any of the configured authentication methods.
On the server side, I have the sshd_config configured properly with all the Passwordauthentication as yes (whole file attached).
Im not sure what can be the problem.... I checked the PAM config as well and I couldnt find anything there.... (its the default configuration).
I can reach the server without problems... so the issue is really the auth. method.. maybe there is something else to be done for RHEL6.6?
PS: I have restarted the sshd service several times.... no new result..
