By default freebsd doesn't have any firewall's compiled into the kernel or
loaded as kernel mod's so you need to add ipfilter_enable="YES" to rc.conf
and type in kldload ipl so you dont have to reboot the machine and also
make sure you add a simple rules to allow all or youll look yourself out
as it defaults to deny all hope this help a bit.
