You need to log on as user 'admin', then `su` to become root.

:D :D :D :D :D Sorry I find the solution... I log on with a working user and than I type su - and pwd excito...

I don't know very well this world. I'm a windows system administrator and I'm learning Linux.

Yes, on the native bubba software, admin is not allowed ssh access by default.
