I am having similar problems to this. I have a web server attached to
monowall on it's own NIC, but if i don't have the 'opt1' interface binded to
the 'LAN' interface i can't see, ping, tracert, etc between the two
networks. Anything on the LAN interface works fine, i can get out to the
internet and vice versa, but from the 'OPT1' network i can do nothing.
I set up firewall and NAT rules to duplicate the LAN rules on OPT1 and it
still doesn't work. Any suggestions. I have been following this thread very
closely and everything that has been suggested hasn't worked for me
