Hi, i made a fix for that issue myself ..

I discovered by testing  vlans in freebsd that the parent interface nedds to
set up by ifconfig .. like ifconfig sis0 up,
so i hacked monowall and changed the /etc/inc/interfaces.inc and add the
following :

at line 63 ( after "$cmd" ... )
$cmd2 = "/sbin/ifconfig " .
              escapeshellarg($vlan['if']) . " up";

at row 77 (after mwexec($cmd); )insert:

this will acomplish bringing up interfaces at boot time.
I hope this got fixed in release 1.1b7.

The Vlan feature is not working the way it should.
Im connecting monowall at a 3com switch 1100 using 802.1q   tagged vlans,
one nic, i cant get access to LAN ip configured.

may it be incompatible with my switch ? shouldn't 802.1q ve a standart and
work with any manufacturer equipment?

it's maybe buggy kernel ? I tryed it with several nics ( xl, sis, ep ) but
none worked ( generic-pc image ).
