Can't logon to ssh

i can connect to ssh… i get the login screen but when i enter my username + password it just says access denied…

im not login in as root just the default admin account and my own password…

anyone has any suggestions ??

Great thanks in advance


I would never login as root remotely. Always create a standard user account and ssh into that, then you can [su] or [su -] into the root account.

Try creating a standard user account [useradd john] and logging in that way

make sure that the user has a correct shell (e.g. /bin/ksh, /bin/bash) setting in /etc/passwd file. If no shell or an incorrect shell is provided the logon will fail.
