nice work.

but... isn't that interesting...

you can't reach an internal server from the LAN via NAT by way of the WAN
IP, but you can reach the m0n0wall webgui from the LAN by way of the WAN

does anyone else think this is strange?  i realize that it doesn't go
through a NAT rule, but... can we coax the same behavour out of NAT?

(hopefull as always... :)
