I have OpenSSH running on my Karmic desktop. ssh localhost works fine. But if I try to ssh into it from a different computer on the same network, it rejects my password every time. What could be causing this?

sudo (Which I have configured to ask for a password) is rejecting my password (as if I mis-typed it) I am absolutely not typing it incorrectly. I have changed the password temporarily to alphabetic characters only, and it looks fine in plaintext, in the same terminal.
First of all, I'm sorry if there is a duplicate post somewhere. I searched for a while but none of the posts I found fixed my problem.
It's fairly annoying. I created a new VM on our network and when using virt-manager I can log into the VM fine with the username and password. When I try to ssh to the VM from anywhere else it rejects the password, but I know the password is correct.
My sister has Ubuntu running on a netbook and just had it upgrade itself to 12.4 LTS. Now, she can log in but just gets a blank desktop with no icons or anything else. If we move to a text console, it rejects her username and password. At this point, is there anything we can do except a brain-wipe and reinstall?
Here is my problem.
I have an Ubuntu server with Samba running on it, the latest version. If I want to mount the share (my home folder) using my office's network, it works fine (Ubuntu laptop/iMac). How ever, if I try to do it from an external network, like from home, then it rejects.
I am trying to connect to my network, it is WPA PSK , I know the password is correct yet ubuntu keeps asking for the password over and over again. I tried to download WICD manager, Wicd returns the password as bad password.
I switched over to BackTrack5R3, it's wicd accepts the password but can't get an IP.
hi, this is my first post here but i have been using ubuntu for a few months now. i have ubuntu installed on my desktop which is connected to my lan via ethernet. when i click on places>network i can see my laptop running win 7. when i double click on my laptop it prompts me for my password. however, i do not know which password to put it.
I cannot login to Crunchbang Linux. When I boot the computer, it goes to the login screen, and if I type the correct username+password combo, it goes to a black screen that reads "failed to execute login command" (if the password is incorrect, it rejects the combo correctly).
I can access my DD-WRT v24sp2 from ssh just fine.
But EXACT same login password on the web login is not recognized.
Could they be different??
This always used to work before. I've made no recent changes.
Something trivially simple???
