DHCP Reservation for VPN Pool (500pts to winner)

Posted on 2006-06-07

I have a working vpn solution using a PIX506 with 6.3.4 code version.  The pix hands out a dhcp address for vpn clients.  Is there a way that I can reserve one of the addresses in the vpn ip-pool so that it is given to the same vpn client machine every time?

    There is no way you can do it as I know but what you can try to do is to create 2 VPN groups and put this particular machine in that group with a pool of single ip address. Let the others use the original group.

    Rajesh has it. You can create multiple vpngroups and multiple ippools of 1 IP address. Have only   the individual that you want to have a dedicated IP use whichever vpngroup/password
