Password authentication (ssh-userauth) failed with OpenSSH daemon 4.2p1. OpenSSH daemon 4.2p1 responed with packet 51 and plain content:

=> libssh2_transport_read() plain (36 bytes)
0000: 33 00 00 00 1e 70 75 62 6c 69 63 6b 65 79 2c 6b 3....publickey,k

0020: 69 76 65 00 ive.
[libssh2] 0.950825 Transport: Packet type 51 received, length=36

Password authentication (keyboard-interactive) via SSH works fine and password authentication with OpenSSH daemon 4.7p1 works also fine.

Any reason (maybe known issue in the OpenSSH implementation) why the password authentication fails with the OpenSSH daemon 4.2p1?

The clue is in the list "publickey,keyboard-interactive" that the server returned to you. This list tells you which authentication methods are supported by the server. Notice that it does not contain 'password' meaning that plain-old password authentication has been disabled on the server. Enable it (PasswordAuthentication? yes) and you should be able to log in again.

Thanks for the quick response and support.
After re-configuration of the OpenSSH daemon it works fine.
