Adam,

	If you are referring to the firewall rules, you can create aliases,
then use the alias name in your rules.  The advantage here is that if an IP
Address changes that you have multiple rules in place for, you can simply
change the IP that the alias is pointing to...

	You can't simply use DNS names and expect the same behavior...  I
mean, in that case it might be possible that someone could poison your DNS
and have your rules allowing things you don't intend.

Paul

Hi,

I have one question regarding firewall part
in monowall. Is it possible to set rules
using the logical name as the source IP
like "something.com" ?

The monowall do not accept that.
It says the the source ip must be specify.

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards,
