I seem to remember some discussion about that, but not the outcome, as I 
have not played with IPSEC in a while for many reasons.

yes, OpenVPN can handle connections to dyndns hosts, if you can read 
this email, it works (sending through my machine at home, connected from 
a client site via OpenVPN :)). I am using * 1.21-ovpn1 on a generic PC

I am using it through TCP rather than UDP (so I can tunnel out at more restrictive sites), but I had
a test setup with UDP, worked like a charm.
