This is exactly what is vpnc [1] made for. Since there isn't any support
for it in m0n0wall yet (there are some good reasons why it is not) you
aren't able to connect your m0n0wall to a cisco easy vpn endpoint (thus
it is possible to connect via site-to-site vpn to a cisco device even if
the client site hasn't a static ip address).
