wet/dry vac


Hello, I just purchased a dewalt dw680k portable planer in order to trim new door slabs. I want to attach a wet/dry? vac to it's exhaust in order to minimize the cleanup and my breathing in sawdust. However the exit port on the planer isn't round (it's oblong) and the last time I saw a vac the tube is round. do they sell adapters for this? And, can I use any type of vac to do this or is there a specialized vac that I should use for my portable planer? Never used a wet/dry vac before so any advise is much appreciated. thank you
