What default rule are you speaking of, Chris?  The only default rule I
remember seeing when I installed M0n0 was a rule for the LAN interface that
allowed any traffic originating from the LAN to go anywhere.  I don't
remember seeing a rule for the OPT1 (DMZ) interface.

I'll take out the static route...

Reseting isn't really a big deal.  I will just have to dig out that monitor
again as I am running it headless right now.
