If scp doesn't work, ssh won't either.

In Sarge you'll find that privledge separation breakes password auth.
You'll need to enable this and allow password auth.  I would suggest
that you get ssh working using publickey asap (see the debian-reference)
then re-enable privledge separparation again.

Good luck.
