Previously I mentioned that "Sometimes some external things need to be
changed(not DNS related) or monitored when an IP changes"
I already have a plan for DNS to get updated using the RFC 2136 dynamic
DNS feature of m0n0wall. I just need to be emailed so that I can do
some manual things which cannot be automated and have nothing to do with
If nobody else is interested in such a feature and because of that it
would never be implemented I could setup a script to query DNS every so
often to see when it changes but it would be nice to have the m0n0wall
do it itself instead of relying on a server somewhere to monitor it. I
would think others might find it useful to be notified when their
m0n0wall changes IP addresses.
I used to do this with my previous iptables system I had and it proved
to be very useful when all your systems send you emails when their ISP
given IP address changes.
