How? I know all of the parameters you listed above as they've never 
changed (and I am with this provider close to 10 years now), but I also 
need my own (i.e. my firewall's) IP address when I get it from my 
provider (and this IP address changes from time to time, so it is not a 
constant), so how am I going to pull that one off?
