 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] Routing problem
 Date:  Thu, 30 Mar 2006 22:01:51 +0200
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 :)
