Openvpn error if server is a domain name instead of an IP address

  • Hello all

    At first thanks for the great job in pfsense 2.0.

    I'm trying to configure a site to site VPN. The client side is pfsense while the server side is a plain openvpn over Linux installation.

    The server works with other clients, but has a dynamic address, so I need to use a dyndns service to make it reachable.

    pfsense 2.0 allows to insert a domain name in the field "server host or address", but whatever domain name I use  instead of an IP address, it always complaints that "the field must contain a valid IP address or domain name" and does not apply the configuration

    Using an IP address always works, but obviously this is not what I need…

    is this a bug, or is there something I need to know to work it around?
