I don't believe there will be a firewall running unless you have
specifically enabled it.  Statements to do so would appear in

Answering this will probably require more details of your
configuration.  The contents of /etc/rc.conf and the output of
"ifconfig" would be a good start.  You may wish to obfuscate any
public IP numbers that appear in that information.
