Host names in access list?

I'm running VNC Server v18.104.22.168 under Windows 2K. Is there any
way to add an access control list entry for a host name rather than only
IP addresses (and/or address ranges)? Whenever I try this, the entry
shows up in the list as "255.255.255.255/0.0.0.0". I would like to be
able to specify "my-remote-server.com" (not the real name) in the entry
field and have this expanded to "my-remote-server.com/255.255.255.255" so
that name resolution occurs at the time of the connection attempt. The
idea behind this is to allow for host names which are bound to dynamic IP
addresses (e.g. via DynDNS, No-IP, etc.). I realize this isn't necessarily
as secure as one might desire, but it's a lot easier than trying to manually
determine what IP address a particular client might have.
