It seems that the "address" field will not accept non-numeric input. I
just tried a FQDN on my 1.1 and it was rejected with:

The following input errors were detected:

 o A valid address must be specified. 

With the options under "Type" being Host or Network - I guess the
input is expected to be IP address only.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Name resolution

Hi All,

I am currently sans m0n0wall here (on dialup after moving home until
ADSL is running) and want to check something...

Can we add a dyndns.org (or other) name in the "alias" section of
m0n0wall instead of an IP?  For example, I want to be able to resolve
to
220.240.220.240 with the alias "snarf" - this is simple, but can I
resolve "snarf.dyndns.org" with the alias "snarf" using the m0n0wall
"alias" section?
