 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] Removing IP from WAN ?
 Date:  Tue, 31 Oct 2006 07:18:22 -0600

Wouldn't either the m0n0wall WAN IP address or your Cisco router's IP  
address work as the default gateway address?  both are on the same  
public/23 network.  Maybe a rule is required to allow direct access  
to the router?

If not, could someone explain why not? (m0n0wall set in filtered  
bridge mode)

Of course, the simple answer to to just use the m0n0's WAN address as  
the clients' gateway, but I suspest you have some legacy reason you  
prefer not to.
