Is your username on the machine you are ssh'ing from the same as your
username on the machine you are ssh'ing to?

If your username locally is USERLOCAL, then "ssh -v ipaddress" is
equivalent to "ssh -v USERLOCAL ipaddress" or "ssh -v -l USERLOCAL
ipaddress"

If your usernames are the same, then the only way I can see "ssh
ipaddress" failing while "ssh -l username ipaddress" succeeds is if
your .ssh/config file has a specific username for that machine set -
something like this:
# cat .ssh/config
Host 			        1.2.3.4
User 			remoteuser

The -l argument to ssh would override that, but without the -l you
would be trying to "ssh -l remoteuser 1.2.3.4"
