Folks, hopefully this is an easy one.  
We have a Pix that we are trying to limit outside web browsing to a few web sites.  I can set up the ACL with no issues and it works with no complaints.  Then the web site address changed and no access to the web site.

Is there a way to list just the DNS name of the web site in the ACL and have the Pix box do the DNS resolution on it's own?  It would save a tremdous amount of  time instead of listing the IP addresses of the web sites (Yahoo Maps happens to be one of the sites we are constantly changing).

No you cannot do that.

The PIX does support products like Websense which can be used to filter on a URL basis.

The way I do it is to force everyone to use a central proxy server and then only allow the proxy to access websites. You can then do all the URL filter on the proxy server.
