I have this running at a number of locations, all using DHCP on the WAN side. 

IF I know the range of addresses handed out by the DHCP server then I set the 
rule so that inbound to this range is permitted.  Otherwise it has to be 
'any' as you suggest.  There seems no easy way around this, even using one of 
the dynamic DNS sites as ipf only resolves names when it starts.
