Firewall rule using FQDN
I would like to use FQDN instead of explicit IP addresses.
Reason - VPN clients/servers with dynamic WAN addresses.
Static address are more secure, but opening up to the world is less secure…
Is this being considered for 1.3, beyond or at all?
Do a search in firewalling. I found threads by typing dynamic and going throught the various posts.
No. Searched with FQDN and got 2 hits that didn't help.
In 1.3 it should be possible to use a hostname in a alias, not in the firewall rule directly.
You can do this using network aliases in 1.2 already, but it'll never update the ruleset to reflect any DNS changes (unless you make a firewall rule change). For records that change frequently this isn't practical.
