You’ll want to be using the same user/pass that you log into FTP with for the domain in question. also the user has to have been granted shell access before you can log in -Panel > Users > Manage > Edit across from the user and then put a tick mark in for allowing shell access. This cange can take a coupel of hours before it goes through - but then you should be good to go.
