traceroute problems

I am using FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE-p1.

What should I be diagnosing if I cannot use traceroute? Whatever
domain I try to check, it always times out. The box is behind a
hardware firewall. It also uses pf to some minor degree. However,
pfctl -d does not allow me to traceroute either.

$ traceroute -v
traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 40 byte packets

 1  * * *
 2  * * *
 3  * * *
 4  * * *

It goes on like this until it reaches 64 hops and then it finishes
printing no additional information.

Many thanks for any hint what to check!
