I'm forwarding this along to freebsd-questions. (You should be
CC'ed on any replies...)
My first thought is that maybe 5.2.1 uses a more restrictive
ruleset for firewalling or that you specified a more restrictive
ruleset in rc.conf (firewall_type, which is used by rc.firewall).
You can view current rules with 'ipfw show'.
Of course, this all assumes you've kept ipfw as the firewall.
Also, I could be missing the obvious. (That's one of the reasons
to not ask on -newbies...)
