That's really a question about the gateway, not the freebsd box.  Yes, 
is the short anwer.

You  probably need to refine your question.  What do you mean by 
"gateway"?  If you're talking about a firewall, you need to configure 
it to allow/forward the ports for the services you need.  If it's just 
a router no special configuration should be necessary.  In any case 
you'll need to enable the appropriate services on the BSD box.
