i use monowall to route sometimes too. just don't use WAN, just add an
optional interface and connect that to a physical nic. routing between
that nic and the LAN is then on by default. in case there's only 2
physical interfaces, i add a vlan, add that as optional interface,
backup the configuration, switch wan and opt1 in the configfile, upload
it again and there's your router :P. destroys any funcionality on the
WAN but makes a router nontheless.. i use this trick to add NAT on LAN
interfaces too. probably not supported but makes monowall a heck of a
lot of fun :)
