Try this little trick, if you can open a telnet session.

type "who | grep -i 'your_login_name' "
the line returned will contain your hostname it may look like 23d.blah.net
type nslookup 'hostname'
the return line will be xxx.yyy.zzz.aaa the aaa will change each time
you connect (it is possible, but unlikely that zzz also changes)

create a file called hosts (in your windows directory if on a pc)
which contains the following lines
127.0.0.1 loghost
'xxx.yyy.zzz.aaa' 'hostname'

and you are all done
