It's not possible in the webGUI, but you can use static ARP in a
<shellcmd> parameter in your config.xml.  (google 'shellcmd
site:m0n0.ch' to find info on using that)

Syntax is:
 arp -s 00:60:97:B9:3B:B5
to assign that MAC address to IP

You can put that in on a temporary basis to test using /exec.php on
your m0n0wall.  This setting will be lost at reboot unless you put it
in config.xml.

But that's easy to get around if you know what you're doing by
changing the MAC address on your NIC to the permitted one.  Many
Windows drivers have this built into the NIC GUI.  And the MAC address
of another system on the LAN is easy to come by (ping IP, run 'arp
