    Hi everyone

    I recently installed a CP for managing my VPS which requires root login (yep, that's bad..).

    To keep the server more or less secure, I would love to have the following:

    - Is it possible, that you allow key based auth from everywhere for user root
    - password based auth for user root only from defined IP/Subnet?

    I read about the match statement in sshd_config, but I couldn't figure out how to do it correctly.

    Help is really appreciated :)

    Thank you,
