FreeBSD generally has sshd(8) enabled
by default.  This is "Secure Shell", and
is similar to telnet, but better ;-)

 From the CLI on another 'Nix/Linux box, try:

$ssh username at hostname

     and see what happens.  If you are running
X (KDE/Gnome/XFCE/Enlighement/Whatever),
open a terminal and do the same.

If you are running Microsoft Windows, you'll
need to install an SSH client.  I like PuTTY,
but there are others.  Google for "SSH client", and,
if you're brave, include the term "Free" ;-)
