Hey Experts!  I have a new Cisco 9200 and set an IP (thanks some one) which is pingable and then configured ssh.  I set a user name and password however when I try to connect to the switch via putty with those credentials, I'm unable to (I get "Access denied").  I can still connect to the switch through a console cable.  

Any help figuring out how to connect through putty would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance!
