Has anyone found a satisfactory way of specifying source/destinations that
have their addresses assigned via DHCP?  I wish to configure Shorewall for
an IPSEC tunnel with an endpoint with an IP allocated this way.  My friend
and I both use the dyndns server to create a domain name that always points
to our respective IPs.  However, if we can't use the domain names in the
Shorewall config then we're just left with hard-coding the IPs and risking
them changing on us.

Any ideas?

All the best,
