Adding the subnet to my OPT interface doesn't work though.
Here is what I currently have configured:

WAN : PPPoE <- mask via RADIUS

Advanced Outgoing NAT is on, and I have an outgoing NAT
rule for the WAN interface with a source network of

In my rules, I have:

Allow: WAN -> OPT
Allow: OPT -> WAN
Allow: LAN -> WAN

According to all of the docs I've seen, this should work.
I should be able to access the OPT network from the internet.
But it isn't working. I don't know if the internet can ping
me, but when I try to tracepath to an internet address then
one of two things happen:

# tracepath

The LAN interface can access the internet without any trouble.

I have maximum logging configured, and when I ping an internet
IP from OPT interface I can see the firewall allow it. I never
see any firewall block logs.

Can someone tell me what is happening and how I can fix it?
I basically want my OPT interface to act like a public routed
