Julian Elischer has done some patches to FreeBSD-current to allow
the same kind of redirection available in linux. Has somebody here
tested them already ?

For more info, refer to

Here's a extract:

Transparent proxy support for -current

    Against -current as of 08 June 1998 Patches to -current for transparent IP redirection (not DIVERT). This allows you to add a firewall rule such as

    ipfw add 2 fwd,4000 tcp from any to any 80 out xmit ng0

    which would divert all http sessions going out through ng0 to a local proxy server listenning at port 4000.
