Freebsd permit root login via ssh

mengizinkan root login via ssh, default dari system freebsd tidak mengizinkan root login via remotely. Hal ini dengan satu alasan yaitu keamanan dan ada beberapa bugs di openssh yang menjadikan di system freebsd defaultnya root tidak bisa remotely.

tetapi untuk memudahkan konfigurasi sering kita harus  meng enable kan root via remote(ssh) dengan melempar masalah security ini jauh2 dan  ke arah firewall saja. untuk bisa remote ssh via putty ke mesin maka yang harus kita rubah adalah di file

sshd_config        <<< letaknya ada di /etc/ssh/

coba cari permitrootlogin

sshd_config   <<< ini masi default belum bisa root via ssh

# Authentication:

#LoginGraceTime 2m
#PermitRootLogin no
#StrictModes yes
#MaxAuthTries 6

sshd_config  <<< setelah dirubah supaya ssh with account root bisa dilakukan

# Authentication:

#LoginGraceTime 2m
PermitRootLogin yes
#StrictModes yes
#MaxAuthTries 6

setelah dirubah simpen dengan perintah esc lalu ketik :wq  lalu tekan enter

setelah itu kita reload configurasi sshd kita dengan perintah

lpds-125-163-ardan# /etc/rc.d/sshd reload
Reloading sshd config files.


selesai sekarang kita coba remote system freebsd kita dengan putty menggunakan account root :P~

login as: root
Using keyboard-interactive authentication.
