The idea is that you have to run tcpmssd on a port, and then do:

   ipfw add divert _port_ all from any to any via _interface_

If you are already running a firewall and/or natd, then look at /etc/ 
rc.firewall and add another divert rule there.  Otherwise, starting up  
tcpmssd & the ipfw rule can be added into /etc/rc.local or a rc.d  

See "man tcpmssd" (or "nroff -man /usr/ports/net/tcpmssd/src/tcpmssd. 
8", if you haven't installed the port yet) for a starting point.
