hello list,

I have a FreeBSD 8.x setup and I am using the gif device to setup a
ip4 to ip4 tunnel (not IPSEC)

I have searched google and I am having trouble finding a recipe for
/etc/rc.conf that will allow one side of my tunnel to be dynamic.

the client if you will is a FreeBSD machine running FreeBSD 8.0
connecting via DSL with a dynamic IP (using mpd5 to dial)
the server is FreeBSD 8.0 and always has a static IP.

I would have thought this setup would be easy to find a answer to but
I haven't found it.

Thank you for any help.
