Re: L2TP VPN on USG - quick how-to

I was also wondering why creating an address object for the WAN interface is required? The ZyXEL documentation did the same thing with a static IP and I wasn't sure why...

If you have static WAN IP then you're fine with static IP. However I have dynamic WAN IP and creating object of Interface type will ensure the object's value (IP) will change as my WAN IP changes.

Bear with me, but I am still confused. I have a dynamic IP, but what I don't understand is why creating an address object pointing to the interface instead of using the interface itself (WAN1_IP in my case) is done?
