Dear Michael,

Sorry for my long delayed response, but your suggestion resolved this issue! I will post a summary of your answer to my SO post here:

but feel free to re-post the answer under your account and I will gladly accept it. It turns out that I had incorrectly configured .authinfo, which was causing Tramp to submit an incorrect password for the server.

Tramp sends a password, but a wrong one:

I suspect, you have somewhere defined a password for that host in
.authinfo or .netrc, which is sent by Tramp.
