is there a typo here or you're using the entire range from 192.168.0 to
192.168.255. If you're using one C class (192.168.0.0), your mask should
be 255.255.255.0 (or 192.168.0.0/24).
I'm not sure but as you didn't specified the interface, ipfwadm is trying
to guess from you source definition, that may not match ifconfig settings.
Just curious: você não está utilizando o potato? Kernel 2.3.x? Por que não
utiliza o ipchains? (sorry all others :)
