crypto isakmp key 1234 hostname DYNDNSNAME no-xauth

I'm trying to establish a VPN Tunnel with a router having a dynamic IP. I'm using DDNS.


"crypto isakmp key xxx hostname xxx no-xauth"

in my central cisco router (2811, IOS 12.4) i always get the error

"No pre-shared Key with (IPADDRESS of the router)"

If I use "

crypto isakmp key 1234 address (IPADDRESS of the router) no-xauth"

everything works fine.

Seems like the cisco is not resolving the DNS. But when I do a telnet on the cisco and a ping at DYNDNSNAME the Hostname is resolved and the ping works fine.

Any idea why it won't work?
