Let me be a little more clear, then. :)
Klaus is doing it in series. You go through one first, and then the
other. If one fails, all fails, unless you physically change things.
I am saying go through one OR the other. Example...
Shophos LAN 192.168.1.1/24
m0n0wall LAN 192.168.1.2/24
Plug both into the same switch to your LAN.
Sophos WAN 126.96.36.199
M0n0wall WAN 188.8.131.52
Plug both into the same switch on your WAN from ISP.
Run DHCP on Sophos only. DHCP clients see Sophos as gateway, and all
devices on LAN. (Including m0n0wall) For servers with Static IPs, point
them at m0n0wall. They will use m0n0wall as a gateway, and still see
everything on the LAN, including the sophos. Both routers are reachable
from the outside.
