User David Pasek shows us how to get VMware tools installed on a virtual machine running FreeBSD. VMware tools improves your virtual machine experience by providing driver compatibility, etc. Follow the link below for the full set of instructions.

VM-LogoFreeBSD is my favorite operating system. All my FreeBSD servers (except embedded systems on physical micro computers) are running as virtual machines. FreeBSD is officially supported GuestOS by VMware so nothing stops to virtualize FreeBSD even for productional use.

VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of the virtual machine’s guest operating system and improves management of the virtual machine. Although the guest operating system can run without VMware Tools, you would lose important functionality and convenience. In other words, VMware tools are not necessary but highly recommended to use on virtual machines running on top of VMware ESXi hosts.
