 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] Firewall Rules Host
 Date:  Wed, 29 Nov 2006 07:17:42 -0200
Yep, i have one host that will be access my network with dynamic IP, 
because of this i have to use the name instead IP.  I tried to create 
the rule, in the firewalI, Aliases, but doesn work. I have to allow some 
ports for this address.
Is there other way to solve this problem ??

Tkss
