Solved SSH to Beaglebone black access denied

I ssh to my Beaglebone Black (FreeBSD 10.1) as root and with a blank password, but it shows "using keyboard-interactive authentication" and access is denied. I use PuTTY and the "Attempt Keyboard-Interactive Auth" check box is enabled.

I just download the 10.1 image build for Beaglebone and write it to my microSD card. I don't know the default root password (it might be better to write it on the FreeBSD Beaglebone Black wiki). I think it is blank so I press Enter directly.

Maybe the problem is that PermitRootLogin is set to no. But I don't have a user account other than root. This is my first time logging into freebsd FreeBSD on Beaglebone Black.

What is the problem? Should I log in via the serial port with the root account? Then create another account and use this account to ssh into my Beaglebone Black? Or is the password not blank?

Use the serial console to log in.
