Sendmail will run only local submission if you don't have
sendmail_enable=3D"YES" in /etc/rc.conf, so you need to add it to make
sendmail listen on interfaces other than 127.0.0.1. Regarding SMTP AUTH
- you need to recompile sendmail with SASL -

You are starting sshd both as daemon and as inetd service. So either
comment out ssh lines in /etc/inetd.conf and restart it or remove
sshd_enable=3D"YES" from /etc/rc.conf (but be sure to check sshd(8)
manpage and search for 'inetd').
