Hi Costa

Can I suggest you change the service script (/etc/init.d/firehol) so 
that instead of RESERVED_IPS=... you have "eval 
`/usr/share/doc/firehol-1.226/get-iana.sh`" or more suitable equivalent.

Also you should put "service firehol restart" into cron.daily or 
cron.weekly after checking for changes to the RESERVED_IPS. That would 
get rid of a lot of heartbreak :)
