Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need to first assign a public static ip address to your CentOS server. Then you can directly use putty by mentioning IP address and default port number 22 selecting ssh option. Then type password which will allow you to login to server remotely.

    If you are sure your password is correct, then probably your sshd is configured to accept only key authentication? Look up the value of "PasswordAuthentication" option in your /etc/ssh/sshd.conf file - it should be yes, if you really want to log-in with a password. There is another option which can prevent your password log-in if you are logging in as root - "PermitRootLogin" (see man sshd_config for details) On my opinion, it's OK to log-in with password as a regular user, but better use key authentication when logging in as root.
