The default sshd setup does NOT allow root to log in. It is usually a bad idea to root logins from the Internet because it exposes the root account to automated cracking attempts. If you must allow root logins from the internet, at least limit it to using key pairs. If you can, also limit it to connections for a specific IP address, or range of addresses.Dear Sir, I want to ssh to my client ,there is sonic-firewall .

[root ndtest ~]# Plz tell me what is difference between them and how it is solved. Thanks Ritesh
As others have said, it is better to log in as a normal user, and then become root. It does not eliminate automated attacks, but it does make them harder.
As a side note, it is not a good idea to be to be logged in as root unless you are doing something that requires it. You are better off running ssh as a normal user when connecting to another box.
