That is expected. After all that is all about proxy. When NAT is enabled then you can ping outside world, that is fine. If you want to provide transparent access to the clients, then you need to enable NAT. You can control the type of access provided (browsing, IRC, IMs, etc) by blocking(opening) the required ports from the firewall. Alternatively, as you say...PROXY, you wont be able to ping outside and the clients have to explicitly configure their softwares to use the proxy running on the BSD Box.
