I've a virtual instance of Suse 10 running in my VMWare player, and I'm fighting against it to allow ssh password authentcation. How can I make it working since I already have tuned the /etc/ssh/ssh_config file like that

#       $OpenBSD: ssh_config,v 1.20 2005/01/28 09:45:53 dtucker Exp $

Host *
#   ForwardAgent no
ForwardX11 yes

ForwardX11Trusted yes

PubkeyAuthentication no
RhostsRSAAuthentication no
RSAAuthentication no
PasswordAuthentication yes
HostbasedAuthentication no
Protocol 2

SendEnv LANG LC_CTYPE LC_NUMERIC LC_TIME LC_COLLATE LC_MONETARY LC_MESSAGES
SendEnv LC_PAPER LC_NAME LC_ADDRESS LC_TELEPHONE LC_MEASUREMENT
SendEnv LC_IDENTIFICATION LC_ALL

With ssh connection sending me the following logs

Incoming packet #0x5, type 51 / 0x33 (SSH2_MSG_USERAUTH_FAILURE)

Telling me that it expects publickey and keyboard-interactive authentications, which I don't want to use.

Noooooo ! I was sure to edit the sshd_config file. But like both replies denotes, I edited the ssh_config file. –  Riduidel Mar 9 '10 at 8:49

Have you restarted the ssh daemon? Aren' you supposed to edit sshd_config instead?

Keyboard-interactive is the framework in openssh that supports passwords (and possibly securid and other PAM auth methods).

Anyway, edit your sshd_config, not your ssh_config.
