	Maybe its the lack of sleep, or might just be that m0n0wall can't do 
this. I'm not sure, so I turn to you all knowledgeable people for this.

	Say that you have your central office, which has obviously a static 
public IP. It will be the main hub for several IPsec tunnels to remote 
offices. Problem is, those remote offices don't have static IPs.

	When you configure a tunnel in m0n0wall, you don't have a choice, you 
need to enter a static IP for the remote gateway. If I could enter a 
FQDN, I could use a dyndns.org setup and it'd be fine. Which I can't, as 
far as I can see.

	So, is there a workaround for this with m0n0wall? Or, sadly, will I 
have to use a different solution. Don't talk about OpenVPN. This was 
already rejected, client wants a IPsec solution, or takes his business
