The file you're looking for is 'sshd_config', and it's usually in
/etc/sshd, but could be somewhere else depending on how you installed it.
If you look at the man page for 'sshd_config', it has this to say about
the "AllowUsers" setting:
This keyword can be followed by a list of user name patterns,
separated by spaces. If specified, login is allowed only for
user names that match one of the patterns. `*' and `?' can be
used as wildcards in the patterns. Only user names are valid; a
numerical user ID is not recognized. By default, login is
allowed for all users. If the pattern takes the form USER@HOST
then USER and HOST are separately checked, restricting logins to
particular users from particular hosts.
My guess is that you've set up something for AllowUsers and you simply
need to add your new user to this list.
