Sorry for the inconvenience.  Chance of typos in templates, the navigation header should be functional for most versions of the handbook.
Potential remains for unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
Notice will be up until above verified and no other troubles found from recent modifications.

ADD DETAILS ON

X - Possible but requires seperate additional configuration.

Windows/MS equivalent (KDE, other window managers?)

Removing X section as too many variables: have to edit /usr/local/etc/gdm/custom.conf, make firewall rules, set display (which varies by shell), etc. Let's stick with the GUI utilities :-)



Some temporary links (or a temporary location for them)

Access X from windows
remote desktop

[edit] SSH Info

To allow a secure shell connection into your PC-BSD/FreeBSD machine:

Create an exception for the firewall:

  • Open the PC-BSD Control Panel
  • Open the 'Firewall Manager'
    • Select the 'Exceptions' tab
    • Click the 'Add Entry' button
      • Select 'ssh' from the 'service' dropdown which will auto-fill the port with 22
      • Adjust the interface to match your network device.
    • Select the 'general' tab
      • Click the 'restart' button

Enable the secure shell daemon

  • Open the PC-BSD Control Panel
  • Open the 'Service Manager'
    • Scroll down the list to 'sshd'
      • Click 'sshd'
      • Click the 'Enable Service' button
      • Click the 'start' button
