Yes. You need to set your DSL modem into Bridged mode then
setup PPP on the FreeBSD system
One big benefit is that when you do this your FreeBSD system
gets a public IP address on it, rather than the public IP
going to the outside of some NAT in your DSL modem that may
or may not work with all protocols you want to run.
