looks a bit old that guide does. Freebsd is actually fairly secure out of
the box. What you need to establish is what kind of usage you are going to
If you are going to be giving lots of people shell access, then what you
will need to do will be quite different than if you were setting up an
apache web server.
Generally I would say just make sure there are no exploits for the services
you are going to enable/install and put them into a jail. Write a decent pf
ruleset for your needs. Above all though restrict access to the box to the
bare minimum of what you can get away with
