ssh2 warns access denied!

I'm trying to connect to my RHEL4 through a Putty client on my winXP.
When I use ssh2 I get 'Access Denied' warning message after i enter my login name. It's a warning message as I am prompted for the password soon after and I successfully login. But when try ssh1 with the same credentials no such warning is shown.
Can anyone please why this happens?

Your ssh is configured with the defaults options using /etc/ssh/sshd_config.

# The strategy used for options in the default sshd_config shipped with
# OpenSSH is to specify options with their default value where
# possible, but leave them commented.  Uncommented options change a
# default value.

#Port 22
#Protocol 2,1
#ListenAddress ::

You can uncomment the "Protocol 2,1" line , and make a restart of sshd service, to work on both protocols.

Anyway, ssh2 is safer and better than ssh1.

Thanks Zamo but it didn't work. Actually was already working with both the protocols...ssh1 doesn't warn for anything..but with ssh2 after I enter my user name (darth) it warns saying 'Access Denied' and then also prompts for password entering which I login successfuly.
Here's the console copied:

Using username "darth".
Access denied
darth@'s password:
