Read the getting started how-to's found here:


Read the documentation in


paying attention to which module reads passwords out of /etc/shadow

Read the debug output, especially lines that begin with "WARNING!"

Do not force Auth-Type in the users file or anywhere else, it's wrong 
99% of the time. There is no credible documentation which says to do this.

When asking for help follow the instructions by including the full debug 
output, not snippets.
