I've got systems setup in the same type of environment(subnet routed to my network/VLAN) but have
not had to use proxy arp, server nat, or 1:1 nat. I simply setup the box to be a filtering bridge
(Option checked in Advanced-->Enable Filtering Bridge). Then, I simply add rules to allow traffic
through (with default deny rule of course).
I just verified this setup is in use on 4 or 5 production systems all running 1.3b11. Maybe you're
going about this the wrong way? :-)
