I don't think this is possible.   At least 1 of the devices would need a static IP address so that the dynamic Ip'd device could establish a tunnel.

You should be able to use a dynamic DNS service such as to do that.

I no longer have access to the RV082's so I don't recall the exact steps, but when you configure the tunnel you should have an option to use a dyndns address i.e. instead of an ip address.
