Hello all,

m0n0wall newbie here and I'm really liking it so far.  I just have a
small, but limiting problem.

My problem is that I need to allow for a host to be accessible on my LAN
with a Public address.  No problem, I have plenty of IPs so following
the recommendations, I assign one to the box using 1:1 NAT, however, the
box is not able to connect to the internet via this interface for some
reason.  One more thing to add and that is that this box requires a
static internal address as well, so I have had to map it outside the
range of the DHCP pool.

Would it help if I added a Outbound NAT rule and if so what should it


Here's my setup mapped out:

x.x.x.1 (ISPs router)
(m0n0wall) (my LAN)
| (box sitting outside the DHCP pool)


Settings look like this:

1:1 NAT
Interface  	External IP  	Internal IP  	Description  	
WAN 	x.x.x.5/32

Proxy ARP (rolled with it since docs said using if not needed is OK)
Interface  	Network  	Description  	
WAN 	x.x.x.5  	NAT can ping and x.x.x.4 just fine, but not
x.x.x.1 and the rest of the internet.  Settings are:


What am I missing?
