From what *I* understand this is impossible. It's not a matter of what
IP you have, but knowing where the gateway is. As I said before, all
traffic to anywhere outside the subnet the computer is on needs to go
through a gateway, and the client needs to know what gateway to use.
Thus a setting needs to be changed. This can be using DHCP or by manual
changes, but something has to change on the client. I can't think of
any simpler way to put it. IF you can get traffic to your m0n0wall,
then you can think about getting it through.
