Yes, password authentication is enabled by default. So, you can skip
Section 2 to do the setup. That would eliminate 'potential
misconfiguration' related to the steps in that Section.

Once you confirm your NX setup is working, you can then disable
password authentication if you wish (recommended) and go through the
required steps.
