I'm sure this is a dead question, but you need to supply more info eneyed. Are you trying to connect to the remote host with root access? If so, you need to "Enable root access from remote machines" (which is not recommend though for security reasons) – JohnB Sep 19 '10 at 0:44

Have you reviewed the common causes of Access-Denied Errors ..?
