You wil linvariably get better results posting to the KDE FreeBSD list

Off the top of my head, fish on FreeBSD is currently not working with password 
connections if it's already tried (and failed) a key exchange.  If this is 
your situation, try either using keys, or switching the authentication 
challenge order in the server's sshd configuration.

Other things that trip people up: For fish to work right, both machines must 
be able to reach each other by hostname, and if you have installed the 
openssh port, make sure the right sshd configuration is being picked up - the 
one from the port, not the original base one, a couple of people have hit 
problems when the configs were different, and their edits were not having any 
effect, and this was why.
