We keep giving you an answer, but for some reason you do not want to hear
it. To start, the D-Link makes several kinds of nasty assumptions that make
it highly insecure. They chose "easy" over "security." I valid choice, but
m0n0wall went the other way. This means that to do what you want to do, you
need a hack. Nothing will change this short of a full redesign of m0n0wall.
That said, your internal testing is still not a valid test. You come from
inside the network, so all the rules are different from someone outside the
network. The only way to properly test is to VPN somewhere on the internet
and come back, or to SSH to somewhere out on the internet and tunnel firefox
back to you. This is valid for m0n0wall, d-link, or whatever you use.
