Okay (drumming fingers), let me redraw my diagram to make sure I'm
asking the right question. :)
[ Internet ] [ Internet ]
[ router1 ] [ router2 ]
[ m0n0wall WAN = IP from subnet1 ]
[ m0n0wall OPT1 = bridged to WAN ]
[ subnet1 or subnet 2 ]
Where router1 = subnet1, router2 = subnet2. I'm not looking for load
balancing or anything, just thinking through the possibilities of using one
m0n0wall instead of two.
