shellinabox

A very nice web-based SSH shell, and ready to go from the FreeBSD ports repo:

# cd /usr/ports/www/shellinabox
# make install clean

Then enable the service and set the port in your rc.conf:

shellinaboxd_enable="YES"
shellinaboxd_port="8022"

And kick off the service:

service shellinaboxd start

It’s particularly useful you are using a Wi-Fi hotspot or in a environment where only HTTP(S) traffic is allowed:
