Hi Michael, hi Thorsten,

Works fine so far, but now, that I have a DNS qualified name in
firewall2.rc.config, fw directly opens an inet connection and it
takes ages to start (~ +120 sec). Looks like a chicken and egg
problem, though. I've patched ddclient (which is running as daemon
now) to call SuSEfirewall2 on success.

I can image fiddleing with some on the fly editing of the config
file to solve this problem, or is some better solution available?

dyndns-aware SuSEfirewall2?
