    I work for a company with a bunch of small remote offices. Each of those uses a BEFVP41 to create a VPN tunnel to our HQ. I'd like to use DDNS to keep track of their changing IPs, but I'm not too thrilled about using either one of the two built-in options in the official firmware (dyndns.org and peanuthull).

    I'd actually like to set up my own DDNS server in the DMZ of our HQ, set it up so that it's responsible for a subdomain containing all remote offices (something like ddns.mycompany.com) and have those BEFVP41 refresh their IP info there over the Internet. This way I could always reach those remote offices' BEFVP41 (even if the VPN tunnel is down), while keeping all the IP info "in-house".

    In a perfect world this would be possible using something like BIND for my DDNS server and possibly a custom firmware for the BEFVP41, supporting nsupdate or something like that.

    Any ideas on how I could possibly accomplish this, preferably using some free (as in "beer") solutions? I'm open to any kind of suggestions, and apologize if I'm asking this in a wrong place (this being my first post here and all).
