I want to use PuTTY with username and password instead of ssh keys.
I edited /etc/ssh/sshd_config and uncommented '#PasswordAuthentication yes ’
Then I restarted ssh with ‘service ssh restart’
But, when I try and use PuTTY to log into server PuTTY does not connect and gives the “Network error: Software caused connection abort” message.
What am I screwing up?
