Andy, Ray,

IMHO dhcpdc *IS* needed to accept the PD RA advertisement from the ISP.
Switching om RA om the WAN side of Monowall will act as ISP and advertise
instead of listen. Or am I completely wromg here? 
Maybe I should just test that bij connecting the modem (Vigor120 in
PPPoE->PPPoA bridge mode) to the Soekris running Monowall and reconfigure
for PPPoE. Unfortunately I have only one ADSL line here and can only test
when nobody is at home except myself...

Egbert Jan
