I have a feature request for the rules :), it would be nice if I could 
use IP-Ranges e.g. 192.168.2.3-192.168.2.5 (would apply to 3 IPs) or 
something like 192.168.2.4,192.168.2.8,192.168.2.12 (would apply for the 
3 IPs .4,.8,.12). In the moment I can only add a single IP or a whole 
network (segment) but for a small network with not so many (public) IPs 
the network segments waste a lot of IPs, of course if I use a private 
network I can waste IPs as much as I like :) but I don't have this 
advantage with public IPs and one of the major advantages (for me) of 
m0n0wall is that I can use public IPs and that I'm not limited to 
private IPs.

In the moment I use as workaround for this limitation (the IP-Ranges) a 
single rule for every single IP which means that I create (for example) 
for the three IPs 192.168.2.4,192.168.2.8,192.168.2.12 three identical 
rules, with IP-Ranges I could remove two of this rules.

I don't know how complicated it would be to add such a feature to 
m0n0wall but maybe you could consider to add such a feature in a future 
version of m0n0wall?

Regards,
