Not true if you are really meaning to use the DNS forwarder.

The DNS forwarder is just that, a forwarder. The clients should use the 
monowall as a DNS server and the monowall will forward the responses to 
the real DNS servers and the replies back to the clients.

The DNS server set on the client SHOULD be the address of the monowall. 
You should not need rules to allow traffic between your LAN network and 
the DNS server.

The alternative is to turn OFF the DNS forwarder option in which case DHCP 
response will contain the address of the real DNS server.

If neither of these work then there is likely a problem at the client. 
What are the clients? Windows, Linux?

Open a command window and run an nslookup command to see what server is 
configured. Try to resolve a hostname on the internet and see what 
happens. Post the results back here.
