Have you ever used ssh before?
I've used the system installed ssh/sshd for years and there's very little that needs set up
to make it work.
You're definately more secure using keygen to make public/private keys, but that's not even
necessary.  I've used it without generating keys with no problems.
Make sure /etc/rc.conf has sshd_enable="YES" so the daemon starts, and hook it to your local
network and test.  It's really not much harder to use than telnet, just much more secure.
