Tim, thanks for the response.

1) Yes, the DMZ is in a private address space (10.100.2.x).
2) Yes, all appropriate rules have been added.
3) I just added a temporary rule on that box that allowed everything to pass to the WAN interface,
and nothing changed.

Something worth mentioning is that this monowall works PERFECTLY on the physical computer I am
attempting to replace.  I'm thinking it has something to do with the networking on the host
machine...possibly?  The host machine is a Windows 2003 server for what it's worth.

I'm not so sure about you, but this Nelson is definitely in some trouble!

Check the following:

1. Is your DMZ in a private address space? Uncheck the "Block Private
Networks" option at the bottom of your WAN interface page.
2. Did you add any firewall rules to allow traffic through the box?
You'll need to add a rule to allow traffic Source:LAN and
Destination:ANYWHERE for starters.
3. Since you can't ping the WAN, try adding a rule to start with that
allows all traffic on the WAN interface. At the very least, add a rule
to allow ICMP (ping).

If that doesn't work, then I guess we "Nelsons" are in some trouble...
