I have been reading these post to resolve teh same issue. I have a linux box
that i have port forwarding setup using "jgate". so i put in my wan ip
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:3333 and it forwards that port to the LAN IP of the AP. On
these 3 AP's I have they dont have a default Gateway setup on them, and I
can access them remotely. For some reason with the m0n0wall's, i cannot
access any AP's. I set up all sorts of rules and have no luck. If someone
wants to help and log into a m0n0wall that I have up and running, I'd be
glad to work with them. Once I figure one out, all the rest should be easy.
