I can't think of any reason why you would have this problem simply because
you're using FreeBSD. The most likely cause is something (hard to say what
without more details) is not configured properly on your FreeBSD system.

Do the people that have trouble reaching your FreeBSD system get any error
messages? Timeouts? Assuming that the users who are having trouble are
trying to connect to your system with a browser, are they also unable to
ping your system?
Is your system behind any kind of firewall or address translator?
Does your system obtain it's IP address via DHCP? If so, is it unable to
renew it's lease? (look in /var/db/dhclient.leases)
Is your default route correct? Is it the same as the system that isn't
having these problems? (assuming that both systems are on the same network)
The more details you can give about your configuration, the easier it will
be to help you figure out where the problem is.
