The mc installed 2 weeks ago on Freebsd 6.0 is mc 4.6.0 and
there is no "shell link" in the mc internal menu.

What version of mc are you using that it has that in the menu?

1) Use scp/sftp: it's called "Shell link..." is mc menu (the problem
Password: prompt is displayed somewhere on the mc command line as it
seems to
be unable to parse it for some reason. So when see it, simply enter
password there & refresh the mc panels w/ C-O,C-O)
2) More general solution: if u run 6.0 use sysutils/fusefs-sshfs
it provides an scp/sftp link within filesystem layer, so you can use
it not
only from mc but from any app. The problem it seems to be much
slower than
plain scp (though uses the same transport), dunno why
