I'm trying to connect to a server but if i use any other user than root the connection closes itself after a successful login:

If i log in as root the exact same way it works as expected.
I've added the users i want to log in with to a group (sshusers) and added that group to /etc/sshd_config:
I'm not sure what to try next as i don't get a clear error anywhere. I would like to enable specific accounts to log in so that i can disable root.
