I am not sure how your situation is different than most, but I use
firewall_type="OPEN" instead of "/etc/ipfw.rules". The other 
options will be listed in the file /etc/rc.firewall .

You may want to look at the following in the freebsd handbook.
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/firewalls.html

> firewall_quiet="NO"
> firewall_logging_enable="YES"
> log_in_vain="YES"
> icmp_drop_redirect="YES"
