Not true. I haven't done it, so somebody will correct me if I'm wrong, but I
believe it's fairly simple once you have your vpn working.
You will need 2 firewall rules on your remote office m0n0wall WAN interface.
The first rule allows outgoing connections to the IP address of the main
office. The second rule blocks all outgoing connections on the WAN. If your
m0n0wall requires DNS to set up the vpn then you may need to add an allow
rule before the default deny rule on the WAN to permit DNS queries.
Add firewall rules on the IPsec interface to control traffic through the vpn
Did I miss anything? It's getting late here.
