I have a requirement to block the direct root SSH access from all the hosts EXCEPT one server. Is it possible ?  I know that we can block the direct root access by setting the directive "PermitRootLogin" to "no" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. But how can i create exceptional in it. Please let me know.

Thanks !
