    Default OpenVPN Site to Site with Dynamis IP

    Hi!
    Thank you for good product!
    I have a functioning Site to Site VPN (with OPenVPN) between 2 Untangle.
    The problem is that both sites have dynamic IP addresses from their ISP.
    Has already created an account on DynDNS and configured Untangle with it.
    But how should I do to create a client configuration zip with dyndns info instead of the IP address.
    Have tried to edit in both files in the zip file (.conf and .ovpn) but can not be imported.
    Thankful if anyone can help me

    Best regards!

    P.S.
    Dynamis=Dynamic

    Config -> network -> hostname

    See that manually specified address option? Fill in your dyndns name and save, then generate a new client.

    Select "Use hostname" in /admin/index.do#config/network/hostname and generate new client OpenVPN config files.

    Thank you Rob and jcoffin!
    If I have created a myvpn.dyndns.org,
    in Config> Network> Hostname, there are:
    Hostname and
    Domain Name
    What information should I write in Hostname or / and in Domain Name?

    Best regards!

    I did as you described and generated a new config file.
    If I edit .conf and .ovpn (from the openvpn-config.zip file) still show
    "remote IP address 1194", it does not show the hostname
    What am I doing wrong?

    You may need to delete the client and rebuild it.

    Rob, I did so
    I'm a bit confused about why not work

    More info:
    The Untangle VPN Server and client is Build: 14.0.1

    Or to make it work I have to do what jcoffin recommended me?
    "Select" Use hostname "in /admin/index.do#config/network/hostname and generate new client OpenVPN config files."

    In Network> Hostname I have selected Use IP address from External interface (default) is that correct?
    Or do I have to choose "Use Hostname"?
    Perhaps this is wrong

    Use hostname if the WAN has a dynamic IP address.
