Like the message says, it's the server that rejected the login.  When
you get just that message with no additional information, it means that
either the user exists but the password didn't match, or the repository
you specified does not match one of the --allow-root= arguments
specified for the server (in /etc/inetd.conf, presumably).  The current
development version now has an additional message for the latter case,
so you'll be able to tell which it is in the future.
