I've tested this a few minutes ago. A dummy interface seems to be not
assignable.

Thanks,
Bernd

Anyone tried, what will happen if you tell m0n0wall to use a dummy as
WAN-Interface like dum0 which isn´t present? Is it not assignable? Or are
there problems while booting m0n0wall? Or will it work but you won´t have
WAN?

No time to test and just a suggestion....

Another solution might be to plug in an USB-NIC and Assign WAN to it. It
doesn´t look nice, but so you wouldn´t have the need to buy a new case. I´ve
heared on the list that USB-NICs work, right?
