Posted on 2009-04-20

ASA 5510 assigns IP address to remote VPN users. Few users want to get same IP address everytime they connect using anyconnect vpn client. How can I reserve IP addrss (via MAC? ). Using internal DHCP or other Microsoft DHCP server is not an option in this case.

Thanks for your help.

    I use a separate VPNPOOL range for particular users, or group of users.
    If you want to allocate that pool to a certain group, just assign the appropriate pool for that group access.

    Thanks for quick response.
    I already have a pool for remote users. How can I direct particular user/login to get a specific IP? Does it requre 1 pool per user?

    yes, you need a pool for any users, however you can have multiple pools which are allocated within the vpn group policy settings.

    Cisco rep says there are several limitations dong so on Anyconnect. However, it seems a viable option for IPSEC. Thanks for you inputs
