Networking: DHCP & Dynamic DNS Updater
It would be nice to add to the DHCP and DNS the ability to register dynamically on the local DNS zone the name of the machine and IP address that have just be assigned by the DHCP server.
This is a necessary option to make managing any environment seamless.
The DHCP service should automatically register a hostname/IP address with the internal DNS server.
The DNS server should then remove the registration when the DHCP assignment expires.

DUAL SERVER free software wil do this on a PC. But it really should be included on the UTM.
This is the one feature that ASG is missing in my opinion. I shouldn't have to add a static dns entry every time I add a host to the network.
Excellent, that exactly what I was about to say, would be an excellent feature to add rules in packet filter and web proxy based on dynamic local DNS name.
This would be fantastic - especially if it could automatically create DNS Host definitions based on DNS clients - REALLY easy for making filter and NAT rules!!
dnsmasq does a nice job of DHCP/DNS integration and would be a welcome addition to ASG.
The feature would be very helpfull!
