I have OpenSSH 3.7p1 running under a chroot, authenticating through PAM to an

Windows users. ssh.com's Windows client (v. 3.2.5) says  "Enter your 
authentication response" now, and after you enter the password and hit OK, it

mechanism back to password, not challenge-response? (That is the problem, 
right?) Why are these Windows clients getting confused?
