Question SSH: Key Auth from everywhere, Password allowed IP only

Hi everyone

I recently installed a CP for managing my VPS which requires root login (yep, that's bad..).

To keep the server more or less secure, I would love to have the following:

- Is it possible, that you allow key based auth from everywhere for user root
- password based auth for user root only from defined IP/Subnet?

I read about the match statement in sshd_config, but I couldn't figure out how to do it correctly.

Help is really appreciated

Thank you,
