It won't. It can't tell how you got the address, but it has to know what
it is. So, if it changes, the system on the other end has to be notified
of the change somehow.
The WAN address on my net4501 is handed to me by a DHCP server on the Cox
Communications cable net. It is currently 188.8.131.52 with a netmask of
255.255.252.0. As long as I stay connected and renew my lease like a good
boy (RFC says at one half the lease duration), I keep the same one. But,
for example, when I had the Soekris box taken apart to install a wireless
card I lost the lease and got a different address when I got back up.
That meant I had to get logged onto the VPN endpoint at the office to
notify it of my new address before I could bring my encrypted tunnel back up.
