Best practice: external interface with DHCP?

Hi,

As I understand it I need to use an address object to create inbound NAT polices for the external interface. What is best practice to use a PAN firewall with a ISP with DHCP? I know this is not the most common setup for this high-end device but for in some cases it's needed.

Right now I'm planning to use a dynamic dns service and use a FQDN type address object for the external interface but I think that's a ugly work around.

Best regards Johan

Hi Johan, that is the only work around. It works pretty good in most cases.

Thanks
