can’t ssh into remote host with root, password incorrect

Enable root login over SSH:
  1. As root, viagra edit the sshd_config file in /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

    nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config
  2. Add a line in the Authentication section of the file that says PermitRootLogin yes. This line may already exist and be commented out with a “#”. In this case, remove the “#”.

    # Authentication:
    #LoginGraceTime 2m
    PermitRootLogin yes
    #StrictModes yes
    #MaxAuthTries 6
    #MaxSessions 10
  3. Save the updated /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.
  4. Restart the SSH server:

    service sshd restart
