Open VPN and Alias

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Is there anyway you can configure either OpenVPN client or the system to allow connections using OpenVPN to be made to computers on the OpenVPN network using their alias rather than their IP address. This may sound blasphemous but you can in Windows. That is if the VPN network is say 10.x.0.x I could connect to Comp4 or Comp2 using Comp4 or Comp2 not 10.x.0. 4 or 10.x.0.2 or whatever IP is allocated by the OpenVPN server. If the OpenVPN server has not been restarted then it will usually allocate the same IP every time the same client connects. (HowTos)
