 Installed 9.0 on a different test box, tested it and it worked fine. To make sure it wasn't a difference with the box, I installed 8.2 and it also worked fine with or without 'via interface' in the ipfw rule. Darn! Perhaps this is related to the ethernet device (fxp on this test box versus em on the other) or the CPU (667 MHz P-III versus 1.6 Ghz Intel Atom E6xx series).
 Unfortunately I can not take the other box out of service and I don't have another one currently to test with. And I don't know when I will be able to acquire another box from this vendor to investigate any further. Might as well close out this bug report as it does not appear to be a generalized problem and may be hardware or vendor specific.
