I have FreeBSd running with OpenSSH. I set up everything and the connection via SSH worked perfectly. Then I decided to get rid of some not used ports and I obviously uninstalled one that was used by zsh.
When I log in I get the following:
~ # ssh email@example.com Password: Last login: Wed Nov 7 21:56:26 2012 from 192.168.1.52 FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE (GENERIC) #0: Tue Jan 3 07:15:25 UTC 2012 Welcome to FreeBSD! Before seeking technical support, please use the following resources: o Security advisories and updated errata information for all releases are at http://www.FreeBSD.org/releases/ - always consult the ERRATA section for your release first as it's updated frequently. o The Handbook and FAQ documents are at http://www.FreeBSD.org/ and, along with the mailing lists, can be searched by going to http://www.FreeBSD.org/search/. If the doc package has been installed (or fetched via pkg_add -r lang-freebsd-doc, where lang is the 2-letter language code, e.g. en), they are also available formatted in /usr/local/share/doc/freebsd. If you still have a question or problem, please take the output of `uname -a', along with any relevant error messages, and email it as a question to the questions@FreeBSD.org mailing list.

Edit /etc/motd to change this login announcement. Shared object "libiconv.so.3" not found, required by "zsh"Connection to 192.168.1.56 closed.
The thing is that I have no monitor nor do I have a keyboard (right now) to solve the problem very quickly...
I tried this to force loading a different shell > Force SSH to use a specific shell
Does not work as I get:
~ # ssh firstname.lastname@example.org /usr/local/bin/sh << EOF chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash EOF Password: Shared object "libiconv.so.3" not found, required by "zsh"%
Any ideas how to solve it without keyboard and monitor?
