Thinking this over myself I think what I need is the following:

- The route to should go to the WAN interface. I think
this is allready the case, since this is the default.
- Packets from should, when sent out over the WAN
interface with destination be nat'ed with a source
address of
- The WAN interface should also repsond to ARP requests for IP so the router knows where to send its response.

If the above asumptions are correct I only need to find out how to do
this on m0n0wall. Any ideas here?
