Unfortunately, I don't know the solution for your problem, but I'm
really intersted what's the point in using rshd? SSH is more common and
it is secure. Security is not necessary in a trusted subnet, but sshd
would suffice your needs. And FreeBSD is shipped with a working sshd
configurations, what You have to do is only enabling it in rc.conf.
