Description

This is a guide on setting up an SSH server with a FreeBSD Installer Disc or USB Image.

  • When the FreeBSD Installer Welcome message appears choose the Shell option.
  • Then acquire an IP address using DHCP:
    dhclient em0
    
    • NOTE: Use ifconfig to find your network interface.
  • Mount a temporary /etc directory:
    mkdir /tmp/etc
    mount_unionfs /tmp/etc /etc
    
  • Set a root password:
    passwd root
    
  • Allow root to login over SSH:
    echo "PermitRootLogin yes" >> /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    
  • Now start an SSH daemon by running:
    service sshd onestart
