Create firewall rule from DynDns clients
I have configured my pfsense box on bridge mode (transparent / monowall) and a new issue came up. I have created firewall rules (access lists) using a static ip source to an "internal" ip destination. I would like to use DynDns client as a source. For example i want to allow access to my internal server ( ip address 188.8.131.52) from an external DynDns client (client.no-ip.biz) since the dynamic ip will change every so. Is there any way to configure this?
On pfSense 2.x, make an alias, and put the dyndns host in the alias. It will be periodically resolved and updated as needed (checked every 5 minutes)
thank you for your reply. I have create an alias (client.no-ip.biz) as a host and i have use it in a firewall rule as a source single host or alias with no success. When i change the source value with the dynamic ip of the client, the policy works fine. I think i miss something here. I also want to mention that i am not using any DNS servers on the firewall and i was wondering if this is the problem. Any suggestions?

It does work ok as I set up a system over Xmas to use the no-ip.com service via pfsense.
