Post your firewall configuration. You should at least have a rule
to allow any tcp from your box to the world.
Here is an fragment from my home computer's firewall rules:
pass tcp from any to any established # allow established tcp connections
pass ip from any to any frag # allow fragmented segments
pass tcp from me to any setup # allow me to setup tcp connections
pass udp from me to any keep-state # allow me to setup udp-connections
This alone won't work, if you want your box to forward traffic
from other hosts in your local net.
