According to instruction I added one rule to OPT1 interface but nothing 
I expand my system by adding 802.1q compatible switch, create VLAN ( for 
example ID 10 ) mark 1-st port as tagged and 2-nd as untagged.
Next I connect my PC to 2-nd port and m0n0 LAN to 1-st port.
And now I can't ping both neither to LAN neither to VLAN.
I think that now I less understand that system.
Tell me please - in that new configuration - should I see from my PC both 
LAN and VLAN subnets ?
Maybe have I wrong NIC in my m0n0 ( detected as xl - 3com 905b ) ?
