Lab 5 require root login with password using ssh. But by default Ubuntu doesn't have root password set, which means that Exercise 5.2 will permanently fail on a Ubuntu system given the provided solution. Most of us of course knows this little detail, but I think it would be nice to mention it in the lab.

    Thank you for pointing that out.

    You are correct and we will correct this oversight.  Logging in directlry as root locally or remotely is frowned upon so we should use another user anyway. 

    This will be corrected in the next update.
