You would be what I call an expert. So why is it through 7 hours of
reviewing the mailist and various searches there is no easy answer on
getting pasv ftp to work correctly with m0nowall?
I feel like a complete idiot. I have been working on IT equipment for over a
decade and I am stumped on why the ftp server doesn't list. It appears to
connect but eventually the ftp software says the server isn't responding so
disconnects. Its not really hard to set up port 21 and ports 50000-50100 to
pass through to my ftp server, but it sure is hard to figure out why it
doesn't respond!

I am replying back to the list so others can have the information.
M0n0wall has ez-ipupdate built in.  It works on dyndns VERY well.  It
will update as soon as an IP changes, or every 30 days if it doesn't.
(The 30 day thing keeps free accounts from expiring)  I have abut 40
m0n0walls on dyndns and have had problems only twice.  Both were
machines with faulty memory causing it to abusively re-register.  Dyndns
disabled it, and sent me an e-mail.  I asked them to re-enable me to
troubleshoot it, which they did.  Great service, by the way.  That is
why I am now a paying dyndns customer.
