In Raspberry Pi from version Jessie onwards the "root" login for SSH sessions (via Putty Login) has been disabled by default. It can be enabled by just editing "sshd_config" file and then restarting "ssh" service.
To start with login to raspi via ssh using the default "pi" credentials. Then elevate yourself to super user "sudo"
# sudo -i
Then edit "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" and update the field "PermitRootLogin"
# vi /etc/ssh/sshd_configAdd a comment
