I recently posted a question to the USERS list about this, and had a
reply to say it wasn't possible. I've still not got an ADSL connection
here, good ol' Tel$tra is keeping to their poor performance records.
Anyway, currently m0n0wall doesn't allow a FQDN to be used in its
"aliases" section, or in other places in its web interface. I suggest

If, in the "Aliases" section, there's a checkbox that offers "Allow FQDN
as well as IP Address", then those who need to use dynamic DNS names
because they don't have a static IP Address (or the remote end doesn't)
can do so - for example, to allow an external dynamic user access to a
Currently, only IP Addresses are allowable which is fine in most cases.
There are however a number of situations that I can see - and a few I
have encountered - where this is not sufficient.
Could this functionality please be added to the m0n0wall 1.2 Beta
versions if there is no significant opposition.
