The server's /var/log/secure may have some hints for why your logins fail.

CentOS7 uses ssh protocol version 2. If you are using an older version of Putty, it may default to using ssh protocol version 1, which is no longer supported. Check your ssh protocol version in Putty.

True, and at least in one instance upgrading PuTTY to the newest version fixed one odd login problem.
