There's a hard-coded rule that always allow LAN hosts to access m0n0wall 
   (LAN interface).


Fortunately, starting with m0n0wall version 1.2b1 (beta), the webGUI 
anti-lockout rule on LAN can be disabled (System: Advanced page).

Be very carefull when playing with this option: don't lock yourself out 
of the WebGUI. You've been warned!
