Well, for one thing if I understand your intent, you have the MAC
addresses in the wrong order. Unless your firewall is acting as a
bridge, you also need to keep in mind that the MAC addresses are changed
when passing through, so those rules will only work on one side (i.e.,
you'll need "in via" type rules).

I don't understand. Was there a suggested approach or not?

I can't guarantee this will work, and I don't have any way to test it,
but my above comments would suggest something more like:
> ipfw add 1 allow all from <IP Address 1> to any MAC any <MAC Address in via $iif
> ipfw add 1 allow all from any to <IP Address 1> MAC <MAC Address 1> any out via $oif
