How to setup VPN users with static internal addresses in RRAS

Hi,

I am looking to find out if a company is running Server 2003 with RRAS, how do I setup users connecting via VPN to get same the ip every time they login. This is meant for backing up data puropose. If I have the laptop connected on the same ip then I can backup the data from the individual laptops on daily basis even though these users are working remotely. The RRAS assigns an ip address from a pool of 10 ip's in the dhcp scope listed on the server. I have my Sonicwall as the DHCP server for all other pc's on the network behind the firewall using a different scope of ip's.

problem with RRAS you  have to punch a hole in your Firewall.  
I recommend moving to a central dhcp server on a windows server.  no need to use two dhcp servers.

I remember wanting to do that with windows 2000.. and never found a way to make it static.  Try using hostnames or a product like
"laptop desktop option" for veritas backup exec.  It is awsome. Much more bandwidth efficient.

I have laptop desktop option for my Veritas 10. How can I configure it if the users are on VPN through RAS?

Mine just works.
i configure it local... and send it to the remote site and it continues to work.
I use hardware VPN though.  I also force all traffic through my tunnel.. i dont split out internet

The Laptop and Desktop option on Veritas does solve this issue for me. I tested and it worked perfectly as long as the remote user is connected thru vpn to the Veritas Backup Server.
