I'm coming in at the tail end of this, but it sounds like this.

Also see the part on "Reading raw IPFilter logs" here.



I don't want to hijack this thread, but I'm aso having a problem with 
m0n0wall dropping packets I don't think it should.

I have three interfaces, an external (assigned by DHCP) and an internal 
(private address space), and a DMZ, with the Internal LAN NATing out 
through the external interface.

Packets from a server on the LAN going to an external address seem to be 
dropped, despite me having a rule on the firewall>rules>LAN page that 
explicitly allows all traffic from the LAN subnet to any.

I even added another rule above that, explicity allowing all traffic 
from this server to go to any, yet the packets are still dropped.

Sample bit of log:

I've posted my entire status.php in a text file at 
http://www.erus.co.uk/m0n0wall.txt in case it can shed some light on 
what is probably my cack-handed attempt at a config :)

I've also read the two URL's given above, and it seems to be catching on 
the default  deny, but I don't see why.

Can anybody spell it out for me please?
