I have a fresh install of openSUSE (tumbleweed) that I am trying to access via ssh from my Windows 7 box on my local home network. I can ping the boxes from each other successfully. I have edited the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file on the openSUSE box and changed the port to 2223. I have added the line AllowUsers (mylogin) to ssh_config. PermitRootLogin is set to no. PasswordAuthentication is set to yes. I generated a public key on my windows machine and copied it to the openSUSE machine via a flash drive and added it to my .ssh/authorized_keys, but my understanding is this shouldn't be needed if I have PasswordAuthentication set to yes.
I have done these things after researching different solutions on the internet but I can't seem to find a solution to my problem: I can't login to my openSUSE box from Windows via Putty. I can connect to a session but I get 'Access Denied' everytime I attempt a login.
edit* I can login via ssh on my linux box from my linux box using
ssh openSUSEcomputername -p 2223
