I am coming back to this issue to inform, this issue is suddenly gone, no
clue why it works now as expected. The tunnel is running now for 48 hours
and I also checked the dyndns updates, both IPs changed within the last 36

Everything works just fine.

The only thing I changed is, "my IP address" as "Identifier" in Phase 1
instead of "User FQDN" the DynDNS DNS entry of the local node.
