Thanks for all the great advise. The fanless PCs ( 2 of them ) I bought from
Logic Source are only 2 NIC machines with no easy way of adding a 3rd port
permanently. I could open the case and add a PCI nic card for the LAN and
then remove it once the whole thing is finished leaving only the WAN and OPT
ports. Is it possible to configure the filtered-bridge without a 3rd nic
port? I'm wondering if I can switch the LAN interface to a bridged

If I need to return them and get 4 port versions, I can do that. Once
operational I only need 2 not 3 ports. Our Watchguard only has the WAN and
DMZ ports active so I guessed I could skimp and get by with 2 ports with

This gets a lot more complicated...

In this situation the best thing might be to give the router the .1
IP, use it as the gateway for the subnet, and put in a bridging
m0n0wall between your network and the router.  That'll be the cleanest
solution in this case.
