    problem with remote access with PuTTY after Ubuntu 11.04 installation

    I had remote connection to my computer with Ubuntu 10.X through Xming/PuTTy without any problem. However, after installing Ubuntu 11.04 there seems to be some setup problem. When I open a PuTTy session I get the terminal prompt "login as:" OK but when I enter the username I get the message

    Access denied
    Using keyboard-interactive authentication
    (I assume it takes this alternative root for authentication because I did check the relevant box in PuTTy configuration [Attempt "keyboard-interactive" auth-SSH-2]

    And then prompts
    Password:

    Here when I put me password I get the connection OK.

    Not sure why it says "Access denied" when I start the session. Not a big problem though as I still can login. However, it will be good if I could get rid of this annoying "Access denied" message.

    It looks like it is trying to use public key authentication first and when this does not work it drops to using passwords.

    Do you have public key authentication set up?
    Can't think of anything profound or witty.

    Thank you for the reply and suggestion. I did manage to stop the "Access denied" message by unticking (unchecking) one of the options in PuTTY configuration for controlling the SSH authentication- [Attempt GSSAPI auth (SSH-2]
