My host is FreeBSD 13, and I'm now configuring bhyve to run a FreeBSD guest (version 13 as well).

If I put "-s 30,xhci,tablet", the mouse does NOT move at all.

However, if I remove that above, the mouse pointer moves BUT not synchronized with the one inside the VM.

What are the solutions - to synchronize the mouse pointer inside the bhyve VM?

It depends a lot on the VNC client you're using to connect to the VM. Some work better than others. XHCI doesn't seem to work at all for some reason. At least it didn't for my VMs.
