Sonicwall 5060c VPN connection setup

Dear all expertists,

I read all manual from Sonicwall that if need to setup a client to network (sonicwall as the VPN gateway), I need to use hte DHCP function to lease IP address for VPN client using globlal VPN client software from sonicwall.

Any way to make the client use static IP over and over again without asking the DHCP server?

Any one know how to setup this VPN? I don't think the manual telling me the truth.

You would set up the VPN connection exactly the same, although you still need the DHCP server to assign the client an IP, but you can set DHCP to give that client a static IP based on the client's MAC address.

Dear all,

I solve this! no need DHCP and use the Global secuiryt cleint don't need IP address assiged.

We need to:
1) enable VPN
2) enalbe the VPN policy.
3) make sure the the user has login and password.
4) in the local user configuratoin of that user, select which subnet this user can access.

That's it.

However, one thing. using this method do not proejct detail control on what protocol user can use after reaching the endpoint, only whcih machien the user can connection.
