...With the cable modem plugged into an ethernet card (as oppsed to USB). Had a few hitches gettting a DHCP lease, but once that was done, everything works smoothly.

I am running FreeBSD4.5.

More details available on request.

Would you know how to get Direct Connect working with a *BSD firewall.
Does it have something to do with reverse NAT?

Also what about Kazaa, what do i have to do to get that working as well?

Thanks

What's direct connect? Not used it, so I can't tell you.

As for reverse NAT, do you mean port mapping? I.e., map an external port on your firewall to an internal port on a 'puter inside, so that connection attempts to that port will be (transparently) redirected to the internal computer?

Apparently KaZaa Lite works out of the box. Not used it first hand, so can't tell you. See here

See The FreeBSD diary for some instructions on how to setup IPFilter rulesets on FreeBSD. Not sure now similar OpenBSD's pf is, but the theory should be the same.

There's also a great howto here. Shows you how to setup a FreeBSD based firewall from scratch. Should be applicable to the other BSD's as well, though.

Cheers.
