IPSEC VPN to client with Dynamic IP Address

I'm fairly new to pfSense, so apologies if this has been covered before.
I'm attempting to set up an IPSEC VPN between my pfSense firewall which is on a fixed IP address & a client's Netgear DG834 router which is on a dynamic address, but has a DynamicDNS domain name that remains constant. I've set up both sides with the same IKE parameters & PSK, but the tunnel won't come up & I'm getting the racoon error "racoon: ERROR: Expecting IP address type in main mode, but FQDN." in the pfSense IPSEC log. Having read through a few other posts, am I right in thinking that using a FQDN for either end of the VPN tunnel requires the use of Agressive mode & isn't supported when using Main mode. As the Netgear DG834 only supports Main mode, what are my options for getting a working VPN.
