I tried various, but the problem is too big.

As standard if you use a dinamic dns, the problem is, the system can resolve
the direct name to ip, but can't resolve the inverses, as the inverse name
is the ip original name as for example dsl.
If you try to resolve the name from your dynamic ip, your obtain the isp
fqdn name.

See you later

Subject: [m0n0wall] IPsec remote gateway, IP only.

Is there a reason the remote gateway must be an IP address and not a domain?
My IP address changes fairly regularly but I never worry about it due to
monowalls exceptional handling of dynamic DNS. The only problem I do face is
I have to update the VPN settings in about 5 monowalls. Is there any way
this could be added to monowall?
