Cisco VPN, L2TP Rather than PPTP

Hi

I'm new to the whole Cisco world so that leaves me with a problem.

I have currently configured my 877 for PPTP dial-in and I get an IP based on Framed-IP from my AD.
This is all good, except that the IP I get when dialing in is based on username, rather than computername/mac-address.

I want to be able to dial-in and get the very same IP as I get when I'm on the LAN.

Can this be achieved via L2TP and does anyone have a config I can copy/paste from?

I've googled quite a lot but cannot seem to find what I'm looking for.

Thanks

/Rune

You can not get one based on MAC address as it does not reach the DHCP server. It is localized to remote client's local LAN.

You can use the computername as username to get the address? Or if it is only one remote user, use a static pool with only one address and make it same as your LAN IP address. Offcourse, you will need to make sure that your LAN computer is offline when you are connected via PPTP, otherwise you will get a conflict.

Ok, I'll let the question stay open a bit to see if anyone else comes up with something....
