For Web servers this can be easily circumvented via a home-redirection
page, hosted at a fixed IP, to the final server who's IP address changes
periodically (e.g., DHCP expiration). The transition between the 'shill'
page and the true home page can be almost invisible. Something similar for
FreeNet should be possible if you have control of the software and protocol.
