Tried this out. Unfortunately it doesn't work. Today the tunnel has been
down again: hard. I had to restart ipsec/openswan 3 times on each side
before the connection went up again. Is openswan not safe against a
changing IP? I know one side is currently a joy killer since the IP is
dynamic but if I have to manually log in both machines to bring the
tunnel ( which should be up all time ) then this is a problem. Any ideas
why DPD could fail to work?
