The new version of ssh defaults to disabling plaintext password
authentication on the client side, which tripped up at least one person.
It is actually a good idea to default this to disabled so we are not going
to change it.
There are two solutions. The first is to supply ssh -o
PasswordAuthentication=yes on your ssh line when ssh'ing to a target that
you need plaintext authentication with. The other is to simply specify the
feature in /etc/ssh/ssh_config (for the client side).
