I am sorry, here is an addendum to my previous post:

>>Somehow Ubuntu was given root user

Actually, upon rereading my notes, Ubuntu was only given permissions of the user doing the login - not root - but we could login with any valid user apparently FreeBSD thought it was presented with a wildcard password.

And I can also verify that FreeBSD clients are able to use the password map when x is used instead of * in the map to represent the password. So I can secure the system using the x but still cannot get Ubuntu clients to authenticate.
