I'm having a remote server running SSH, I use the scp from my local computer like this: scp filename.txt username@IP:Port:home/username

it asks for the password, I supply it, he doesn't accept it for 3 times and then I get "Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password)"

Enter the correct password.

Also, check the system log of your server. Try connecting to a sudo sshd -rddp 222. Try connecting from a different PC.
