You say that this works as root, but your example seems to indicate otherwise. By default, root logins via ssh is disabled in the sshd config file, usually at /etc/ssh/sshd_config. If for some reason you want to allow root logins via ssh then uncomment the following line and change "no" to "yes" - then restart sshd:
However, I think this would generally be frowned upon from a security
Tks for your advice which works.
This arrangement is only to facilitate Administor's job. He operates outside contact as 'user' from there if necessary he can login as root doing maintenance.
He should be a member of the "wheel" group. He should then ssh in as "user", and use su(1) to "become" root.
Better even still, install sudo (/usr/ports/security/sudo) and let him use that: then you can see what your Administrator has been up to, if necessary....
