Yes, this is certainly possible. You need to be running at least FreeBSD 4.6-STABLE from after August 16th 2002: any later version of 4.x-STABLE or -RELEASE will do fine, as will any 5.x version (although running 5.x on a critical router is probably not the best idea). Under 4.x you need to follow the instructions in the ipfw(8) man page about enabling ipfw2 and compiling an appropriately customised kernel -- see the sections "USING IPFW2 IN FreeBSD-STABLE" and "IPFW2 ENHANCEMENTS" towards the end of that page. Under 5.x, the ipfw2 is the default ipfw supplied with the system.
