I wouldn't suggest this on a production box, but if you're desperate (temporarily), and you have
access to Freebsd4.x executables, and you use a good filter, you can do something like this:

From exec browser window:
Upload tcpdump
Upload /usr/lib/libpcap.so.2
mv /tmp/libpcap.so.2 /usr/lib
chmod 644 /usr/lib/libpcap.so.2
chmod 755 /tmp/tcpdump

/tmp/tcpdump -i {interface} -f 'ether host 00:05:43:45:40:61'

You'll have to open another 
	and run killall tcpdump to get rid of it.

Recently I had the same problem. Fiddling around with the MTU size on the wan interface fixed it for
me. It was another site though.

Capturing on the m0n0wall itself is not possible as far as I know. Setting up rules to monitor
connections in the log is as far a m0n0wall goes. Remember to set up a syslog box somewhere, be
prepared for quite a lot of loglines. ;-)
