 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] Question on how to tunnel IP address
 Date:  Tue, 23 Aug 2005 03:15:52 +0200

if I correctly understand your mail you are mixing up public-ip with 
If your internal adresses are in one of the ranges        -      -     -
you will not be able to connect it from outside via a rule.
Those are private-ip and are not routed on the internet.

You will have to configure IPsec on m0n0wall to create tunnels.
Either your friends also have a m0n0wall and you can use m0n0-m0n0 
tunnels or they will have to install some VPN-Client.

Look at the m0n0wall documentation and/or search the list to find out 
how to configure IPsec.

Did I answer your question ?
