Thanks for your reply Jim.  I stand to correct myself on my previous note,
after thinking about it, I cannot run the desktop client updater for no-ip,
because there's no way for the desktop client to know what my external IP
address is ;D so anyway, I guess I have to give up my DNS name in favor of
ez-ip. Any suggestions from anyone out there on recommendations for free
dynDNS providers for maximum compatibility? The reason I ask is I build lots
of firewalls like this, and am always testing new Linux and hardware-based
firewalls, and I would like to not have to end up switching DNS providers
again :)

I too was using no-ip quite happily.  I switched to using one of the ones
supported by ez-ipupdate instead.  I didn't have anyone by myself
depending on the name, so it wasn't a real issue for me.

I think the simplest way to get m0n0wall to support no-ip would be to get
the ez-ipupdate people to add support for it.

Another option might be to make your old no-ip address into a CNAME that
points to another dyndns address.  However, this requires upgrading to
the pay version of no-ip.

Manuel has been pretty clear (I think) about only wanting one dynamic dns
update client.

hope this helps,
