This is caused by the fact that you're using MD5 passwords (use
--with-md5-passwords if you don't want to use PAM) and you haven't enabled
PAM (--with-pam).

As a rule, I should say that you should use the RPM's unless you know what
you're doing.  ./configure --help gives some pointers.

I installed openssh and i tried to log into my machine from another
machine. It says permission denied even though I have given the correct
passwd. I built openssh from the sources on a PIII box running redhat6.2

I installed openssh removing my's ssh in the hope that it will
work fine too

Please help
