ScreenOS and ddns
Netscreens are fun. Allright, actually they’re just really, really flexible. I’ve been very impressed with netscreen firewalls, the SSG5 is a fantistic device – just keep in mind that you’ll spend some time learning the ropes if you delve into a screenOS based device. Dynamic DNS is pretty standard these days, but netscreens actually make y0u install the proper SSL cert before you can access a service like DDNS via an encrypted channel. If you just want it to work, just select the clear text option when you configure the usual options.
Sometime in the near future, I’ll have a Juniper SRX to play with. Now that’ll be interesting.
