Default configuration for sshd is to not allow logins from root. You are supposed to login as a normal user and the use su(1) to become root. If you insist on logging as root, you will have to edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and modify the line that says '#PermitRootLogin no'. See the manpages for sshd(8) and sshd_config(5) for more information. -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
