Yes Password is set for the sftpuser on remote server. I am able to login using password.

Below are some of the settings in .sshd file on remote server. Do I need to change any of these settings?

PasswordAuthentication yes
GSSAPIAuthentication yes
GSSAPICleanupCredentials yes

What are the contents of /etc/ssh/sshd_config on the remote server?

Thanks for your reply.

Here is the contents of sshd_config on remote server

[root@IP ~]# more /etc/ssh/sshd_config
#       $OpenBSD: sshd_config,v 1.80 2008/07/02 02:24:18 djm Exp $

# This is the sshd server system-wide configuration file.  See
# sshd_config(5) for more information.

# This sshd was compiled with PATH=/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin

# The strategy used for options in the default sshd_config shipped with
# OpenSSH is to specify options with their default value where
# possible, but leave them commented.  Uncommented options change a
# default value.

#Port 22
