Subject : remote root login as root fails with login incorrect

Description :

Trying a remote login as root gives following error message:

Login incorrect
Connection closed.

A non-root remote login functions properly.

SOLUTION SUMMARY:

The pseudo tty devices are not labeled secure.  The lack of 
label defaults to unsecure.

ttyp0    none            network        off
ttyp1    none            network        off
ttyp2    none            network        off 
ttyp3    none            network        off 
ttyp4    none            network        off
ttyp5    none            network        off
ttyp6    none            network        off
ttyp7    none            network        off
ttyp8    none            network        off
ttyp9    none            network        off
ttypa    none            network        off
ttypb    none            network        off
ttypc    none            network        off
ttypd    none            network        off
ttype    none            network        off
ttypf    none            network        off

Explicitly label the ttyp devices to be secure and remote login
as root will work.

ttyp0    none            network        off secure
ttyp1    none            network        off secure
ttyp2    none            network        off secure
ttyp3    none            network        off secure
ttyp4    none            network        off secure
ttyp5    none            network        off secure
ttyp6    none            network        off secure
ttyp7    none            network        off secure
ttyp8    none            network        off secure
ttyp9    none            network        off secure
ttypa    none            network        off secure
ttypb    none            network        off secure
ttypc    none            network        off secure
ttypd    none            network        off secure
ttype    none            network        off secure
ttypf    none            network        off secure
