    I'm assuming sudo to root is what u want. The user needs to be part of the wheel group.

    Quick hint: Use visudo
    And: sudoers doesn't live in /etc as in many Linux; it is in /usr/local/etc

    Other than that sudo on Linux and FreeBSD are essentially the same from a config file perspective.

    Yes indeed - the FreeBSD "Handbook" should always be a first stop for FreeBSD users and administrators.

    http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO...ooks/handbook/

    However sudo isn't part of the FreeBSD operating system. It is an add on package, and thus it's documentation is to be found elsewhere.

    http://www.courtesan.com/sudo/man/sudo.html
    http://www.courtesan.com/sudo/man/sudoers.html

    On the OP's system, run:

    pkg_info | grep sudo

    With the version returned from that:

    pkg_info -do sudo-1.6.9.20

    ... and that will tell you more about the package; where in the ports tree it lives (security/sudo) and often a website you can visit.

    I suggest also installing from ports pkg_search:

    /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg_search

    Which will allow for searches like:

    Code:
    $ pkg_search -r sudo
    fxsudoku-0.5.1_12   	/usr/ports/games/fxsudoku
    gnomesudoku-0.6.0_1 	/usr/ports/games/gnomesudoku
    gnustep-sudoku-0.6_1	/usr/ports/games/gnustep-sudoku
    ksudoku-0.4_1       	/usr/ports/games/ksudoku 
    sudoku-1.0.1_1      	/usr/ports/games/sudoku  
    sudoku_solver-1.11  	/usr/ports/games/sudoku_solver
    sudo-1.6.9.20       	/usr/ports/security/sudo 
    sudoscript-2.1.2    	/usr/ports/security/sudoscript
    sudosh-1.8.2_5      	/usr/ports/security/sudosh
    sudosh2-1.0.2       	/usr/ports/security/sudosh2
