It should be sufficient to _enable_ the "toor" user by providing
him a login shell (use "chsh toor") and a password (use "passwd
toor"). An additional setting for sshd is not needed because
toor is treated as a regular user (not "root" which per default
cannot connect directly per SSH). If possible, check a local
login first to make sure everything works as intended. You
should then be able to connect via "ssh toor at".
