1. How do I get sshd running?

You have to edit /etc/hosts.deny and/or /ets/hosts.allow to specify which hosts are allowed/denied access. To allow anyone to connect to your machine you can add sshd: ALL to /etc/hosts.allow. See the hosts_access(5) man-page for further information about the file format. When this is done you can start sshd by entering the command /etc/rc.d/sshd start and/or edit /etc/rc.conf and add sshd to the SERVICES array, i.e. SERVICES=(... sshd ...), which means that sshd will be started when the system boots.
