Thanks Christopher and David for your post.
Christopher, I'm not sure if I have the ability to route public IP
addresses. I may, but I feel I still have a lot to learn about M0n0wall.
I mean, I have operated M0n0wall with public static IP address in the past.
And I can remote into my M0n0wall, just by using the public static IP
address and also by VPN. I thought the 1:1 NATing was the same as routing a
subnet through my M0n0wall.but maybe it isn't. I still have a lot to learn
about generic routing.lol.
From what you say, and what I have read elsewhere, I'm starting to think I
should stay away from the 1:1 NATing too. I guess bridging my M0n0wall
completely is the best answer. I guess I could get along without the
captive portal capability.
I apologize for taking so long to answer. I have been bogged down with
I do love this M0n0wall.although it's taking me a while to learn how to use
it. I'd fly across the USA to take a good course on M0n0wall or I'd pay
$100 if someone wrote a good book on the subject.
So I guess I'll go with bridging.
Thank you both,
