REQUEST: EoIP - hostnames as remote-address

Tue Sep 19, 2006 9:37 am

Hi,
Is there a chance to define a hostname as remote address of an EoIP-Tunnel?
I am thinking about an EoIP-Tunnel between two sites, on of them has an dynamic (dial-in) ip-address which could be resolved via dyndns.
But every time i try to set the hostname as remote address, an error like "ip address expected" appears...
I would be happy to see this feature in 3.0 :)

you can register dyndns name (think it is free) and with little scripting get the IP everytime you need it.

Anyone managed to succeed this?
7 years later and still "ip address expected".
