Hi and thanks for reply.
It may be the reason on a principle line but, and I repeat, I never had 
that sort of problem before.
I've been using m0n0wall for some years (used the 1.2x versions too) and 
never had to activate the outbound nat and set a rule to block port 
remapping tu use emule normally.
You can tell me it was a bug of the earlier versions, or it's a bug of 
the newer ones but you can't tell me that the problem exists with every 
m0n0wall version. I always used emule and kad connection have never been 
firewalled till I start using version 1.3b9.
BTW other users says they start having the same problem since version 
1.3b6 but NOT before.
