Enable Root Login Over SSH to Multipass Virtual Machines


I’ve recently forsaken VMware Fusion in favour of Canonical’s Multipass to create and manage Ubuntu Server VMs on macOS.

There are two things I want to be able to do with Ubuntu Server VMs: establish an SSH connection as root and navigate the file system using applications such as Forklift and FileZilla. Purists and more security-minded individuals may balk at this, but these VMs are local, non-production servers purely for testing.
