[RESOLVED]ssh problem - permission denied


I have two servers: A and B with centos 5.2 x86.

The problem is from A to B (ssh test1@Bserver.com) works fine.
However from B to A (ssh test2@Aserver.com) shows "permission denied".

If copy "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" of A to B, then will this problem fix?

repo,

This means an example user.

Real users' name of A and B server are different.

For preventing confuse, I will change two users' name.

so the user exist.
Any pointers in
/var/log/auth.log?
you can try
Code:
ssh -v user@Aserver.com
Can you login from the server itself?
Code:
ssh user@127.0.0.1
You are not trying as root right?

repo,

1) ssh user@127.0.0.1 <- Yes

2) "ssh -v user@Aserver.com" gives me hint. Password is incorrect.

Thanks a lot!
