The address 192.168.0.11 must be assigned to a interface in the host FreeBSD.
You can do it before starting the jail, or when the jail is being started.
To assign the address before starting the jail do somthing like this:
# ifconfig lnc0 alias 192.168.0.11/24
where lnc0 is the name of nic in the host FreeBSD
And you can add to /etc/rc.conf:
to assign the address then the host FreeBSD is booting.
To assing the address when the jail is being started just add to /etc/rc.conf
This way is preferred.

1. get the jails list:
JID IP Address Hostname Path
9 192.168.64.14 mx1.loc /store/jail/mx1
8 192.168.64.25 nslst.loc /store/jail/nslst
2. select required jail by JID, for example 9 for mx1.loc and do:
# jexec 9 tcsh
3. you're in
a.) Login inside the jail. Now add to /etc/rc.conf sshd_enable="YES" and
# /etc/rc.d/sshd start
c.) When you're inside the jail you can install software like in the host
You can use the pkg_add or the ports system.
d.) It requires to use firewall either ipfw or pf.
For example you can add to your /etc/pf.conf:
nat on lnc0 from 192.168.0.11 to any -> 192.168.37.133
But the firewall requires more lines then this one to work correcly with all
And you have to know exactly what you want to get for using it.
