Unhappy


I've just installed ssh-2.1.1 and I'm running into a little trouble with the authentication. I've got the sshd daemon running on my machine, and when I ssh my.ip.address I get the following prompt
bickford@128.205.72.48's password:
At this prompt I enter my password for my "bickford" account on my local machine, and it simply gives me that same prompt again. After entering my password a couple more times it errors out saying "Permission denied".
Now, if I don't have the sshd daemon running in the background I get the following prompt when ssh'ing in...
Secure connection to 128.205.72.48 refused; reverting to insecure method.
Using rsh. WARNING: Connection will not be encrypted.
Password:
I can successfully log in when I recieve this prompt, but I'm assuming it's not using ssh and is simply going back to good 'ole rsh. Anyone have any idea why this might be happening? Basically it just boils down to when I have sshd running, it won't let me authenticate. Thanks for any help.

hmm...
This one could be a few different things. Are you using ssh or OpenSSH? If you compiled OpenSSH from source it may not have configured itself to use PAM. Take a look in /etc/pam.d and see if there is an sshd file. If there isn't that is most likely the problem. Also, are you using tcp wrappers?
