Currently in our office I'm running an OBSD firewall with OVPN  
but all the rules are getting to be a headache to manage, so the plan  
was to evaluate m0n0 and possibly make the switch.  However I've hit  
an early snag in testing, in that after configuring the physical  
interface and setting a LAN IP, I still can't access the machine.   
I've tried two machines, one with a via rhine based card and the  
other with a 3com, and tried both the 1.0 stable and latest 1.2  
beta.  In both cases after setting an IP on the LAN I can't ping or  
access the web interface, and with 1.2 even pinging itself for the  
configured LAN IP results in failure mentioning no route to the host.
      The one thing I can think of and haven't been able to test is  
that there is not a second interface in either machine for WAN  
configuration.  I assumed it wouldn't be necessary for a WAN  
interface just to check out the configuration management.  Before  
just picking up some cards on my way into the office does anyone have  
a quick answer as to whether or not the lack of any configured WAN  
interface is causing the problem?
