I turned on debugging mode and tried to authenticate remotely and got a new error code:

Program returned code (25) and output ''
(1)  ERROR: multiotp : Program returned invalid code (greater than max rcode) (25 > 9): 
(1)   [multiotp] = fail
(1)  } # Auth-Type multiotp = fail
(1) Failed to authenticate the user
(1) Login incorrect (multiotp: Program returned invalid code (greater than max rcode) (25 > 9): ): [pete] (from client 10-network port 0)
(1) Using Post-Auth-Type Reject

  As always, run the server in debugging mode to see what's going on.

  Odds are that someone changed file permissions on you, and the program you're executing no longer has permission to do it's job.

  That is an unrelated error, and can be ignored.
