SUDO Package Using root Password
I started using PfSense about a week ago, so i'm still learning it and trying my best to configure it somewhere like our old firewall, the thing is, our old firewall had an ssh access with public keys, and upon logging in it (it was possible to login via ssh only with a non-root user) i could su to root and gain privileges, but in PfSense i did not found a way to ask for the root password when the user sudo something.
So basically, i installed the sudo package to manage root privileges for non-root users, but it only asks for the current user password, i would like to know if there is an way to ask for the root password instead (the root user do not have ssh access).

I would think that's a sudo usage question.
Best asked elsewhere
Well 10 sec w. google
sudo -u root command Run command as root.```
Thanks for your reply, you are indeed correct, i'm a newbie with linux, so I did not understood the differences between sudo and su until I read your link.
