 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] using common topology through captive portal
 Date:  Sat, 24 Oct 2009 19:37:56 -0400
The box in question we're talking about being behind the portal is  
actually a webserver. however due to physical location, topology  
restricts it to only be accessible via the physical network governed  
by the captive portal. What i'm trying to do is make this machine part  
of the LAN network, again, while being physically connected to the  
captive portal network.

i hope this clarifys
