    Question Openvpn hostnames?


    I am setting up a network over the internet with openvpn. One computer is running in server mode, and an indefinite number will be clients. Everything is fine so far, but, because of dhcp, no one knows exactly who anyone else is. Is it possible to use hostnames or aliases over vpn? Is it possible to disable dhcp and have static ip assignments?

    I have no idea.

    Thanks for any ideas!

    You can use the client-config-dir directive to specify a directory which contains per-client config files. These files can be used to specify static IPs (along with a load of other stuff), clients without such a file will get a dynamic ip.

    Let us know how you get on,
