Thanks for your answer; unfortunately, I had already done both
suggestions you had (uncheck "block private networks" and add the static
route). The problem is not for "BOX" to send packets to 192.168.128.0/17
(i see them incoming using Wireshark) but for the return packets which
are filtered (i see them as being blocked by the monowall firewall,
although it *does* have a firewall state created for the BOX->LAN
direction!). This is really puzzling to me...
