I'm at work right now and my colleagues prepared a Debian server for me and left.
Now I just found out that I can ssh into it using PuTTY from a Windows (XP) box just fine (no Linux machines here, sadly) but somehow when I'm on a mac,
ssh [user@ip] doesn't accept my password.
Same with SFTP: WinSCP works just fine, command line SCP or any SFTP software like CyberDuck doesn't work at all. ("wrong username or password")
The only clue I have is that FileZilla on OSX is able to connect whenever I set it up to use a non-existant encoding. It complains about the invalid encoding and then connects just fine. Setting the encoding to UTF-8 or auto-detect just gives me authentication errors again.
ServerFault, do you have a clue how I could get this Mac to connect properly to the machine? Much appreciated.
Edit: Here's the output of ssh -v:

To be honest, I can't find any clues in this. Can anyone else?
