I'm bit of a newb to Pi and I've setup a RPi 3 Model B with Raspbian. I followed this guide (see below) to setup SSH correctly, however, when I try to access the Pi with the correct credentials (using the Termius SSH client) I receive the returned message "Connection Closed with Status: Authentication has failed of Raspberry Pi" I'm stumped, I've followed all the recommended troubleshooting and can't figure out why its not authenticating. Has anyone experienced this before?

Edit: Apparently I did not ask a real question, so here it is. I have done the following:

2. Enable SSH

As of the November 2016 release, Raspbian has the SSH server disabled by default. It can be enabled manually from the desktop:

Launch Raspberry Pi Configuration from the Preferences menu
Navigate to the Interfaces tab
Select Enabled next to SSH
Click OK

Alternatively, raspi-config can be used in the terminal:

Enter sudo raspi-config in a terminal window
Select Interfacing Options
Navigate to and select SSH
Choose Yes
Select Ok
Choose Finish

Then I used my Terminal client on my iMac, entered the correct details, the IP address for the Pi was taken from the DHCP Server tab in my router (RT-AX88U ASUS WRT-Merlin), I have also verified the IP address by performing a LAN Scan, I then entered the username and password and received an authentication error. I have verified that I am using the correct password and user name. I cannot access the Pi using SSH from other clients on the same network. I can access my QNAP NAS, Router, and iMac from SSH/terminal clients from devices on the same network, I just cannot access the Pi, is there anything else I could try? What are my options? Thank you.
