Is dynamic IP addressing necessary? Rather than having the dialled-into
system pick an address for its caller, how about if the caller asks
for a particular IP address and authenticates itself with, say,
a password? That same calling host would always ask for the same address.
The name-address association could be permanent, only the connections
would be temporary.
