AFAIK, nothing ran from the exec.php page will persist across reboots.
There is the hidden config.xml options, earlyshellcmd and shellcmd.
Take a look at: http://www.m0n0.ch/wall/docbook/faq-hiddenopts.html
But, not to beat a dead horse, but I do have a question. Did you need
to add the IP to the Proxy ARP page? From the Proxy ARP page:
Proxy ARP can be used if you need m0n0wall to send ARP replies on the
WAN interface for other IP addresses than its own WAN IP address (e.g.
for 1:1, advanced outbound or server NAT). It is not necessary if you
have a subnet routed to you or if you use PPPoE/PPTP, and it only
works if the WAN interface is configured with a static IP address or
Does your WAN have a routed subnet or use PPPoE/PPTP?
