Hello, I am trying to configure preshared keys and crypto maps with hostnames instead of IP adddresses. I have one site (hub) that is on a dynamic IP and multiple sites (spoke) with fixed IP's. I opening a new office that will have a fixed IP and need to be able to get back to the site with the dynamic. Looks like the pix supports this, but the code I am running 6.2 will only allow the IP option. Do I need a code update ?

You should configure the preshared keys and crypto maps with IP addresses instead on hostnames. If the one host uses dynamic IP address you can configure to have the tunnel initiated from only this host to the other host with fixed IP address.
