Setting A Root User Ip
Subject: Setting A Root User Ip

Is it possible to set up your linux system so that remote root user logins can only be attempted throught a proxy.

So when I login as root, only I can even be prompted to login since it has my ip address. If anyone else on a different pc tries to then they cannot login as root...

is it possible?

thanks

Its not something ssh supports.
Personally I would disable root login via ssh and use su and sudo.

but when you login as a user that is not root. Is it possible to switch users even when remote root is enabled?

Thats what su does.

su = switch user.

And it works with both root login ENABLED and DISABLED.
