need root access, you should use a staff account in the wheel group to
remotely log into the machine, then su to root.

or set

PermitRootLogin yes

in sshd_conf

much easier.

The fact that remote direct root login is disabled is a security feature,
meant to prevent things like brute-force attacks on root over the
network.  It's a bad idea to change that behavior, in general.  Back when

just another stupid myth. simply use good passwords.

having to log through 2 accounts doesn't increase security. actually increases mess.
