Assuming that you configured m0n0wall to listen on port 1026 for the web 
gui (which isn't necessary in your scenario)...

In addition to the firewall rule, add a NAT rule to forward port 1026 on 
the WAN to 1026.

Tip: If you plan to forward ports, start with NAT rules first because 
there's a checkbox at the bottom of the page that reads, "Auto-add a 
firewall rule to permit traffic through this NAT rule".
