Hello Matt,

An easy way is:

 echo sshd=yes >> /etc/rc.conf ## be sure to use two >>

 /etc/rc.d/sshd start

The instructions are with:

 man rc.conf # and search by typing "/ssh"

You can also learn more with:

 man rc.d

If you don't have networking setup yet, read about it in that rc.conf
manual page and the ifconfig.if manual page. Also see

Have fun!
