Could you post more details on how you conducted this test? Did
you/could you use a packet sniffer to check which UDP packets
actually appeared at m0n0wall's LAN and WAN interfaces (and provide
us with trace files)?
I've tried to reproduce this problem - without success. Result: UDP
communication from/to port 500 worked fine between two machines on
the WAN and LAN interfaces of a 1.21 m0n0wall in the default
configuration - both outbound and (after adding an inbound NAT rule +
firewall rule of course) inbound, and bidirectional in each case.
