Could you be more specific about what doesn't work? Have you tried ping 
and traceroute? nslookup? HTTP? Sometimes when people are having trouble, 
it turns out that they are having trouble with specific apps, but 
otherwise can connect successfully.

It looks like you're using the CLIENT ruleset from the default rc.firewall. 
If this firewall is for a LAN, you will have more success with the SIMPLE 
ruleset. (I made the same mistake the first time I set up a LAN firewall.)
