FreeBSD firewall and dynamic IP-address

I have just installed FreeBSD 4.9 and got it somehow working as router. Now I'd like to get firewall working and I've read this manual: but I'm stuck with the firewall configs. It says I should define IP-address but I dont know what to put there because my IP address changes every time I connect internet.

# set these to your outside interface network and netmask and ip

I have added following lines to ipf.rules

pass in quick on tun0 proto tcp from any to any port = 9176 flags S keep frags keep state
pass in quick on tun0 proto udp from any to any port = 9176 flags S keep frags keep state
and following lines to ipnat.rules

rdr tun0 port 9176 -> port 9176 tcp
rdr tun0 port 9176 -> port 9176 udp
Downloading files works well but I can't use search.
