Um, I dint really get you... 
What I want is to be able to type the WAN IP of the router to access the
comp next to me on the same subnet (all port forwarding is setup) but for
some reason it doesn't work... doesn't work with radius, doesn't work with
my custom app that I'm building...

So here is once again what I have say forget about HTTP, let's take RADIUS
and CP for instance.

My radius server is at when use that IP my CP works fine, but
when I use my WAN address the CP can't connect to radius. (Never the less
the remote subnet can connect to radius on the same IP)

Well I think my brain is not working at 1:00 AM on Friday night... but I
still can't get what is causing the problem?

WAN Bounce only works for the WAN address of the m0n0wall router.  If 
you have multiple IPs mapped to the same interface, those will not be 
bounceable. To be able to bounce, you have to enable the port on the WAN 
side via Firewall rules from *any* source (port 80 for example if you 
want website access).  To get more complex than that, you would need to 
use DNS forwarder to start using a lot of websites from within for ease 
of use.  I use the very thing you are talking about so I can work on 
website related stuff from within the network and people outside on the 
WAN will have the same access.  Much easier than having to type in the 
local address or machine name all the time.
