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 :-)

[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

To access your machine, from a shell prompt type: ssh <ip>
It will assume the current user account exists on the remote (your) machine.
