I have a FreeBSD machine running as a Virtual Machine. There are 2 things that I need to do.

  1. Change the IP Address and Host name
  2. Put this machine into the Network. My machine is already connected to the Network. I need to configure my FreeBSD machine to be accessed by my Host machine.

How to do that ?

  1. Edit /etc/rc.conf and change the settings for the hostname and interface IP address - you'll need to reboot afterwards
  2. That depends on whether you're running a DNS server for your LAN or not. If you are, simply add it to your DNS zone. If you aren't you'll need to add it to the hosts file of all other systems. Detailed instructions require further information.

The FreeBSD Handbook is a good source of basic FreeBSD knowledge.
