Re: VPN between 2 dynamic ip's ?

I've successfully configured site to site VPN connections using
FreeSwan, RSA keys, and using our own Dynamic DNS server (gnudip). It's
a straight forward tunnel connection. Couple of points
left= and right= should be FQDNs, also uniqueids = yes is important, it
drops the old connection if a new one is authenicated and initializing.
And one final one, Dead peer detection should be enabled, if you are
using a patched version of freeswan, as I don't believe the Debian
(woody) package contains that patch (though it does add AES, and x.509
certificate support).
