UltraVNC & Dymanic IP - DYNDNS

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to configure UltraVNC so that I can connect to a host site that has a dynamic IP, without having to type in the full dyndns name, port and possibly even the password ?

e.g.
Dymanic ip = 81.107.190.200
DYNDNS name = hostsite.dyndns.org
Password = letmein
Port=5900

So, in the VNCViewer, rather than typing hostsite.dyndns.org::5900 what I would like to type is "site1".  This would then display the connection box and password request field.

Even better if the password could be passed at the same time the connection is established as I use *very* strong passwords for client sites.

Thanks

Please note the above IP, DynDNS name & password above are dummy ones !

you have an option in Ultravnc to save the connection configuration to a file.
this action saves the site name/ip address and its password(encrypted)
when you save it to file, you just simply double click on it, and it opens the viewer.

by the way - to save the connection info to a file, when the connection is active, press Ctrl+Alt+F5.

hope I helped.
