 Subject:  VPN with dynamic IP (details)
 Date:  Fri, 9 Jul 2004 23:37:03 +0200
Ok let me give some few more details:

Box A:
- m0n0wall 1.1b15 with static IP (ADSL termination with static DHCP
- IPsec configured to allow mobile client.
- pre-shared key configured to match box B.

Box Z:
- m0n0wall 1.1b15 with dynamic IP (also ADSL).
- IPsec configured to build a tunnel to box A.

What happens:
- if we use "IP address" as identity (in tunnel config and pre-shared key)
box A does not recognize the remote identity and therefore cannot find the
matching PSK.
- if we use "domain name" as identity phase-1 comes up and that's it (no
phase-2 negotiation).
- I even tried to set into the PSK as remote identity...

Any idea ?
