The logs show nothing out of the ordinary and nothing about being 
blocked. I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to remove m0n0wall from our 
network. Perhaps in the future this will be fixed and will work better. 
But in the meantime, I'm going back to NetBoz where we had none of these 
DHCP issues.

Please note - we are using Remote Desktop on about 20 PCs and these are 
the ones with issues - where networking is the most important thing. 
Everytime it goes to get an new IP, their remote desktop session freezes 
and they are forcifully disconnected from the Windows 2000 Servers.
