Per instructions from the moderator below i'm making this post to the 
free-bsd questions mailing list.

I'm building a samba server. I have an XP laptop using putty via ssh to 
remotley administer. I cannot use putty to logon as root directly. If I 
logon as my regular user I cannot su/sudo in as root. I tried modifying the 
sshd_config file with AllowUsers root@ip. This didn't work. Any suggestions? 
Im somewhat new to UNIX and nery new to FreeBSD, so my indepth knowledge is 
not the best.
