Multioutlet strip

I need a code rule here.

A multioutlet strip, located inside a screened-in porch, is plugged in inside the house (The strip's cord runs through a hole and enters the house, where it is plugged into a standard receptacle).

Do we need this circuit to be GFCI protected? And which is the best way to go: Breaker or Receptical?

I am curious as to whether or not outlets of any type located inside a screened-in porch require GFCI protection.

Thanks,

-Terry

Code does not allow you to run a cord through a hole in the wall. Add a new receptacle on the porch. And yes, it does need to be GFCI protected. A GFCI receptacle is normally the best solution.
