    user unable to login through SSH onto New account


    hi, I created an account using the following command:
    #useradd -g developers john

    and successfully changed the user password with:

    #passwd john

    The user is unable to login using the New Password using SSH.

    As a root I can login (#su - john) with no problem.

    What am I doing wrong?

    How did you configure SSHD?
