I've not found a FAQ on this, as it applies to ipfw.

I use a popular IM client called Trillian (   For 
the longest time (with IM generally), I've not been able to perform file 
transfers; this is because I'm behind a FreeBSD-4.7 NAT (ipfw + nat) 
firewall, with an internal RFC network.

What I want to know is if there are rules I can implement with ipfw that 
will permit these file transfer services to work properly - or if I'd 
otherwise have to install some proxying program.

Any pointers would be appreciated, and I will forward that info to the 
Trillian Forum for future users to see.
