Mount shares by name over VPN
Authored by: skrawcke on Mar 12, '08 08:18:06AM

FYI this will only work if the remote computer has a static IP and DNS is up to date, if the remote computer gets it's IP from a DHCP server and doesn't have a dedicated DNS name this might not work.

This will work as long as DNS is up-to-date. It doesn't matter how the server gets it's IP address. It only matters that the DNS server knows what it is.

Yeah, exactly. If properly configured, dhcpd will update dns with the new IP.

Sorry if this comes across a bit snarky, but this hint doesn't take an advanced network guru to figure out. It's kind of the whole point of having hostnames and DNS. :-)
