The uk is also a hit and miss affair - sometime you can keep your IP for
months, othertimes your conn goes out of sync for whatever reason, you
restart the router and get a different ip ... not something to rely on
for a vpn ... roll on being able to use fqdn for ipsec ....

I don't agree 100%: in France for example, most ISP reset the PPPoE
sesion after 7 days to ensure your IP will change at least every week.
They claim it's for security reason, but I believe they lack IP
addresses instead...

Yes, some of them let you always use the same IP address, but it's not
the majority. And in most cases, you have to pay extra fees for this
nice feature.

But you're right: if you can get a DSL connection with a fixed IP, IPSec
will work!

Sorry ;-)
