iStumbler...a man after my own heart....I love my PowerBook. =)

I think once you setup the WLAN, mirror the WLAN setup after the LAN rules, 
etc. I access my m0n0 off my wi-fi only. should be simple to do....I think 
thats all I did.

My LAN segment is my servers, my WLAN is all other internal systems. But now my 
LAN is more like a DMZ....

wish I could access my m0n0 from here to look at my config....(work blocks all 
but 80 and 443 outbound)

need to setup htunnel or something like it =)
