Hello list, I recently installed m0n0wall 1.2b8 on GX-110 in order to find a
solution for wireless access/captive portal needs.  Well to my excitement,
m0n0wall is so feature packed and easy to use that I am going to replace
full FreeBSD based routers with m0n0wall as well.  

Is there a way in m0n0wall to statically create an arp entry?

Command line equivalent -
/usr/sbin/arp -S 192.168.1.1 AB:CD:EF:AB:CD:EF

I set the DHCP reservation and make the IP to MAC mapping permanent in the
arp table.  This allows me to prevent unknown computers from using IP
addresses that may have a hole through the firewall.  I can't get a shell
session on m0nowall to run the arp command manually.  Is there some other
way to do this?  

Thanks list.
