Is there a way to fallback to password authentication and ignore the ssh-agent?

    Yes, you can use the PreferredAuthentications field in the SSH config. For example:

    Host some-host-to-authenticate-with-server-password
       PreferredAuthentications password
    Host some-host-with-server-password-fallback
      PreferredAuthentications publickey,password
