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?
I'm trying to make some changes from the ctrl+alt+f1 menu, but the shell only rejects my login ("login incorrect" message). This is the same login and password that is accepted EVERYWHERE ELSE I'm asked for one. No, it is not an error of my typing. What is the deal? I changed my computer's name recently, could that be getting in my way?
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.
Hello helpfull people. I had some difficulty loading Ubuntu 12.04 so I deleted it, as I could not Uninstall.
Now load cd, drop down appears, recognition appears as to owner etc,"password" which I had written upon the obverse of the cd's sleeve. I type it in the box and get "incorrect password":rolleyes: Would someone walk me through a remedy for this problem please.
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.
