Yep, the -vvv option on the remote ssh and taking a look at
/var/log/messages and /var/log/secure should provide details about why
failure happens. Perhaps the sshd_config file is set to only allow
public key connections? That would certainly make a password attempt
fail (and is how I have my server setup for remote connections versus
local network connections where I do allow passwords).


Here are the outputs:

Could you try "UsePAM yes" without the leading #, as in
UsePAM yes
