DNS question for VPN Peer

Unanswered Question
Jun 22nd, 2007


when i create a vpn peer in my PIX or ASA, will the host gets resolved to ip address from the public DNS or it will just translates once & maintains the same ip address?

bcoz my requirement will b like this, vpn.cisco.com is what i would like to keep as a remote peer, so i would not b using any static ip address, i would be using a dynamic public ip address, so when ever if ip address is getting changed this vpn.cisco.com should act according to the new ip address.

crypto map pix-to-pix 4 set peer vpn.cisco.com

Taken from a 6..3 command reference.

With relation to the crypto map set peer ip|hostname command


Specify a peer by its IP address, or by its host name as defined by the PIX Firewall name command

Hope this helps
