When using password authentication it's irrelevant if
you try to login as yourself or any other account.
Your account then unconditionally and invariably needs the
user rights as described in the aforementioned README.
Better try RSA authentication when login from your own
user account (either started from CLI or as service) and
password authentication when sshd is running as service
under LocalSystem account, which has these user rights
by default.
