Just to give yo an update. After a couple of re-installs, I was able to self
ssh connect to the FreeBSD box. This I notice was possible by turning off
"named" in rc.conf. Sadly, without this enabled I find I cannot connect to
I think I have narrowed the fault down to ssh from mac os x because I could
connect from ssh client on windoz. On mac os x I get same message
[ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.5 port 22: Permission denied] when the
freebsd box is switched on or OFF!!
I guess I will have to try mac lists for a solution.
