I am not sure if I had correctly understood. I still
believe that your problem consist in the fact that telnet
and ssh work on different ports.
this should enable ssh and telnet from (i.e. sitting *at*) your
firewall. (this of course is not the best filtering policy,
it should serve only as example)
### allow outgoing ssh connections
ipfwadm -O -a accept -P tcp -S $EIF 0:1023 -D any/0 22
ipfwadm -I -a accept -P tcp -k -S any/0 22 -D $EIF 0:1023
### allow outgoing telnet connections
ipfwadm -O -a accept -P tcp -S $EIF 1024:65535 -D any/0 20
ipfwadm -I -a accept -P tcp -k -S any/0 20 -D $EIF 1024:65535
hope this works
