Nope...here's a diagram:
[OPT1] -- [switch] -- [m0n0] -- [hub] -- [router] -- [Internet]
The m0n0wall PC has 3 NICs. The hub exists solely because I have a PC
connected to the hub to monitor traffic levels (using BWMeter). The LAN
interface is connected to another PC solely to configure m0n0wall.
In this configuration m0n0wall is basically a transparent
firewall, and all PCs on OPT1 have Internet access. Pinging to the
router from a PC shows no problems. The only difficulty appears to be
pinging from m0n0wall. If there was a loop wouldn't OPT1 <-> Internet
traffic be affected?
Asked another way, "should" m0n0wall 1.2b9 have a WAN IP set up?
If not, then it cannot connect to an NTP server, it seems to me. But,
with a WAN IP, it seems like it should be able to ping local PCs if the
connection is truly bridged.
