erlang shell via ssh

Yesterday, I tried to setup so that I could get an Erlang shell via ssh access.
I failed! Sometimes I think the OTP man-pages are just a tiny bit too terse...

Anyway, I do not want to run as root, so I tried:

1> ssh_sshd:listen(3322, [{user_passwords, [{"admin","admin"}]}]).

then I tried to connect with ssh:

# ssh -p 3322 localhost

But I just got an error report about 'eaccess' etc.

So if someone know how to setup this I would appreciate to hear about it.
I used OTP R10-9.

Cheers, Tobbe
