When i tried to configure a VPN connection from home to a RRAS server, the
connection wizard asks for a "Host name or IP address of destination". But
the RRAS server is behind a Linux firewall and this firewall doesn´t have a
fix IP neither a public domain name. I´m a little lost. How can a make this
connection ?
By the way, the firewall should port forward the correct ports to the RRAS
server;Am i right ?
Thanks in advance.

To initiate the VPN connection, you must be able to reach the target
machine through the Internet. If the target machine is using private
addresses behind a firewall, you must connect to the firewall's public
interface and use port forwarding to get the traffic to the server.

If the firewall does not have a fixed IP, the only option is to have it
register its IP with a provider who will update its IP in a dynamic DNS, so
that you can reach it by name.
