The problem is the first line.  I strongly suspect that that line
comes from SSH.  The problem is that SSH has no idea what mechanism
to use to ask you for your password.

But you're prompted for a password, right ?
You should either try to get SSH to use `ssh-askpass' (which opens up an
Xwindows dialog box) or else try to make sure that SSH does not need to
get your password, for instance by using ssh-agent (you may have to create
an identity with ssh-keygen etc...).

Does it prompt for a password ?  If so, how ?  If not, why not ?
