Configure RAS Static IP

How do i configure a RAS policy that always assign the same local ip when a specific remote ip are connecting? As standard setting the remote ip always got a new IP address each time it connects (through VPN PPTP). The Client are an added Windows VPN Network card from an Windows Standard Server.

I need a ipsec-tunnel between our local network and that remote server and find this to be a nice and easy way to approve it. Other Suggestions (other than openVPN are welcome)

In active directory under the user's profile, on the dial-in tab, at the bottom of the page there is an option to assign a specific user a static IP when connecting by VPN. Other than that, assuming you are using the Windows VPN, I know of no other way.

This works, but is it safe enough?

Safe in what way? There is no greater risk assigning a static IP than a dynamic IP. However, a PPTP/Windows VPN is not as efficient or as secure as using an IPSec VPN router at each site to create the tunnel.
