Assuming is exactly not what people would help. I've took a look at the
source again. Unfortunately there isn't any real documentation in it.
The links on the website are all broken. But reading a little bit helps

Ok Jens, take a look at
for the manual page.

Fill in your parameters to the DynDNS page of your m0n0wall:

Go to the execution page:

Type in:
echo "server=<server name>" >> /var/etc/ez-ipupdate.conf
where <server name> is the DynDNS server of your provider.

Go to the WAN page of your m0n0:
Don't change anything and just press "Save". Your firewall should now
reconnect to the internet and calls ez-ipupdate with the changed config

Verify everything does well by looking at the system log page:
for a string like:
/usr/local/bin/ez-ipupdate[86172]: successful update for ng0-><ip-addr>

And yes, it's easy to implement this in next (beta) version.

Ciao ...
