Ok in re-reading the original message, I don't think the multiple  
subnets have anything to do with the problem (but I might be wrong).

assuming you have something like this. -> L3 Device -> -> Router ->   Internet.

and you are trying to limit 10/8 access to the internet (by requiring  
them to agree to something  (monitoring, no pr0n, etc...)).

So I think the better question is what device connects you to the  
internet? Is there a firewall or some other device there?

Basically you will need a point to limit access that all traffic *has*  
to pass through.

If it is a *nix box, you can look at something like nocatauth /  
nocatsplash (http://nocat.net/)  to control the access.

Or they do make devices that will do all the magic for you, etc..
