I'm no IPFW expert, but it seems to me that the packets are already in
and NAT'd. Then they're being redirected internally. Thus being
"allowed from 'you' to any" (Don't take this explanation as true. It's
merely my understanding from the brief look at the link Mr, Barber
sent you, which you read . . . right?)

Two suggestions for getting more specific help:
1) Look around on the web. There appear to be many discussion about
IPFW and NAT. (eg.,
2) Post your ruleset. This way, folk will know what to "alter."
