I have been meaning to chime in on this.  I developed a web page tool that
handled DNS, DHCP, and Firewall rules from the web about 5 years ago.  It
was easy to add/modify records for any computer, including firewall rule
changes.  The cool thing about this was people who didn't have access to
modify the firewall could see what policies were in place so they'd know if
something was not set up correctly (e.g. if port 80 wasn't open).

Unfortunately, we've since changed Firewall vendors, the firewall part of
the script broke, and it has never been updated since then.

Are there any tools out there that handle DNS/DHCP, and Firewall entries
with one application?
