It may be the host denies root acces from anywhere else but the console (its common...)

Re: root remote access

If you want to be able to remotely log in as root on a solaris box ( and are not worried about security) do the following:
1. Edit the file /etc/default/login
and comment out the line that says:
CONSOLE=/dev/console.
ie. it should read
#CONSOLE=/dev/console

Good luck
nothing wrong with me that a few lines of code cannot fix!

Re: root remote access

If you are getting "login incorrect" and you know you have been putting in the correct passwd, the the CONSOLE line.
