How to enable root login on FreeBSD 10 ?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, today I'll show you how to enable acces to root login via Putty.
Yes, I know SSH accesing is better, but there is tut how to enable root login in FreeBSD 10.
So first log in to your FreeBSD 10.



And write this:

vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Then you should search line like this: 

#PermitRootLogin no

Remove # and replace no to yes, like this: 

PermitRootLogin yes

Final step is to restart your sshd

/etc/rc.d/sshd restart

And that's it. It's really simply and this tutorial is for real amateur in this biz.


But I think it can be useful.



Peace, TyWin
