Hi,
I have got a gentoo box with SSH running. Ive stopped root loggin's through SU as a security precaution, but when i ssh into the gentoo box using a standard username it wont let me su to root. It always gives me :

Code:
su: Permission denied
Sorry.


Ive never and to change any settings to allow su through ssh for users before on other linux distrubutions, so im assuming this is a Gentoo security thing?

Any ideas?

For added security, gentoo asks you to add any user that should have access to "su" to the "wheel" group. :)
