Cannot connect to terminal from Webmin on FreeBSD

OS type and version FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE-p3
Webmin version 2.105

Hello, all,
even after long looking I can’t find any hint for solution. Using Webmin on FreeBSD and there haven’t been any problems for a while.
But since recently the terminal function is stuck in “Connecting”.
Browser console just says that websocket connection failed.
.tmp/.webmin/ws-xxx.out says:

Cannot open a pty at /usr/local/lib/webmin-2.105/proc/ line 267

I honestly cannot say what exactly changed between working/not working state.
A wild guess would be Perl modules as I upgraded Perl and had to extra install some of them, but the Webmin page with Perl modules says:

All of the following Perl modules recommended by Webmin are installed : DBD::mysql DBI IO::Pty Net::LDAP Net::SSLeay Sys::Syslog

Current Perl i:

This is perl 5, version 36, subversion 3 (v5.36.3)

I am absolutely not familiar with Perl so I have no idea what to look at next.
Can someone help?
Thank you very much in advance!

A while back there was at least one or two active forum members who used BSD. Not sure if they are still around. BUT, you might want to edit the title to add BSD to attract the attention of BSD users. Not many here can help with it.

Thanks for the tip :wink:
