You can pick any number(s) from the 100 that are available by default.
Make sure you keep below 100 though.

Not really, I've been using cipe on ISDN dialup (fixed IP) with a hangup
timeout of 180 seconds and never encountered problems. Got no personal
experience with dynamic IP's but I got the impression (from the list) it
should work just fine.

Is the perfect way to run it IF you have a static IP. Otherwise (dynamic
IP) I guess you have to do something if you (re)establish a connection
(like routes and addresses). Check the list archive for some more info
on dynaic IP's if that's what you got.
