Hello,

do you want to establish pre-boot sessions via SoL or a login session to
FreeBSD?

For the latter, if you add
boot_multicons="YES"
to /boot/loader.conf, you can leave /etc/ttys as it is (having that
nifty ttyuX status "onifconsole").
Else there is also "boot_serial" and "console="comconsole[,efi]" e.g.
for /boot/loader.conf.

If you really want have login only, edit /etc/ttys to "on" instead of
"onifconsole".

Best,

-harry
