Your machine is not running ipfw.  In order to do so,
you must either compile support into the kernel (older
releases), or load the KLM (Kernel Loadable Module)
for ipfw.

Since you don't mention your version (`uname -a`), I
can't guess what you'll need to do.  Try this as root:

$ kldload ipfw.ko

   and see if it fixes your problem.

See the firewalls section of the FreeBSD handbook for
more information.
