Hi list,

I recently became the happy owner of a soekris net-4801 board, and got 
it up and running with the latest m0n0wall on a CF card.

My aim with the box is to share a internet connection between some 
clients on the lan, NAT a few ports to some servers, and else block 
unwanted trafic. My setup looks like this:

WAN ------- [x.x.x.x]  m0n0  [] -------- LAN

                        OPT1 (unused for now)

I've activated the "brigde" thing, at it seems to be the only way, my 
clients can use the internet. However, in this "mode" I can't reach the 
webinterface. If the "Brigde mode" is turned of, I can reach the 
webinterface, but not anything on the internet.

I guess my setup isn't that complicated, but searching the archives gave 
me no answer to theese questions:

1) Is the "Brigde" mode nessecary to get clients on LAN on the internet?

2) If so, what should I do to make the webinterface accessible from LAN?

Note that, as with m0n0wall, I'm very new in the BSD world.

Kind regards
