Can the cisco pix 506e be configured to assign static ip addresses to computers on the inside interface? Ex. Take the MAC address of one computer, and assigning the computer its own ip address?

If I can, what commands would be used?

    No it can't do the mac based assignment afaik. But it can function as normal dhcp server.

    No, you cannot use the PIX to assign IP addresses based on MAC.
    The dhcp server is very basic.
    If you have a Windows server, it has all those features in its full-blown DHCP server feature.
