Microsoft VPN on SBS 2003

Can you setup Microsoft VPN in Routing and Remote Access and use a firewall/router as the DHCP server or must the SBS server providing the VPN perform DHCP?

If you already have DHCP on the SBS server you would want to have the VPN connections get their addresses from the server also.

Thus far DHCP is handled by the firewall.  Is it possible to use the firewall for DHCP to service VPN clients?

oldPCguyCommented:
Sure. The DHCP client will request a IP address and the DHCP server will provide it.

The VPN client will receive an IP address when connecting just like any other client on that internal network?

Thanks for the info, oldPCguy.  I appreciate the help.  I thought that if the server was not performing DHCP that I would have to explicitly configure Route and Remote Access to recognize the DHCP server device.

Yes - you do need to tell the server where the clients are getting the DHCP addresses from by setting up a DHCP relay agent on the server. Here's a pretty good step-by-step guide ... http://www.tech-faq.com/dhcp-relay-agent.shtml

Pretty important step. :)
