Is there a way to allow users out the wan without having them have to dhcp
first?  I guess where I am going with this is say a user has a pc that has a
fixed IP for there office or home and they do not change it is there a way
to still allow them to gain access to the wan port IE the internet without
having them change their IP settings to dhcp?

I have seen this on another box and for public locations would be a very
useful thing for mmm... more non technical users to get to the net.  On the
other box they use the mac only not Ips to pass the traffic.

Best Regards,

You could setup a DHCP rnage on m0n0wall from 100-200, then put a
static IP on the the mobile user of say 50.

DHCP does more than issue an IP.
1. It tells the PC the gateway of last resort.
2. It tells the PC what DNS to use.
3. It can also tell the PC about WINS servers
4. ...etc, many more possibilities

If you give the pc a fixed IP for work, you will also need to give it
a fixed gateway, subnet mask and DNS, which may not work at home or on
the road.
