Tell IPFW that you want to allow packets.

You'll probably want something like:

 # ipfw add 00100 allow ip from any to any

This will allow ALL packets, so it's not really acting as a well
configured firewall, but it should fix your immediate problem.  Check
out rc.firewall and rc.conf for info on choosing something that may be
better suited to your needs, and take a look at the BSD handbook for
more information about firewalling in general.
