version 1.11 I'm assuming? Is your OPT subnet not within your WAN
subnet? There is a bug in filtered bridging under those
circumstances, in that it uses antispoofing rules on the bridged
interface where it shouldn't.
Best solution is to upgrade to 1.2b9, as that bug was discovered and
fixed several 1.2 versions ago. Or you can put in a static route on
your OPT interface for the public IP subnet on that interface,
pointing to any IP. The route doesn't actually function as a route,
but routes open the antispoofing rules to allow the subnets contained
within them. You don't want or need to disable the default rules.
