How to assign a Cisco PIX VPN user a static IP
does anyone know if it is possible to make sure one VPN user always gets the same IP address?
We are using a PIX 515E

yes that is possible.
If they are always using the same system you can simply setup a DHCP reservation on whatever device is acting as the DHCP server. If it's the PIX simply setup the reservation as a part of the VPN DHCP Scope.
Another note is that if you're using a RADIUS server for authentication you could assign the IP address based on the actually "user" account.

thanks - this person will be using the same laptop and I have his MAC address - what is the command for that?
Im not seeing a command to create a dhcp reservation in the documentation, is there a workaround ?
I just remembered that PIXs can't do DHCP reservations. ASA's can. You'll need to use your internal DHCP server (presumably a Windows Server running DHCP). You can setup DHCPRELAY on the Cisco PIX to relay DHCP traffic to your internal host.

ok thanks - I set up a lease pool on a windows server, but when I enter dhcprelay enable inside I get the following:
DHCP Relay cannot receive DHCP requests and forward them on the same interface.
from what I can find, I think you meant to say "dhcprelay server 10.10.10.10. outside"
but looks like there is a tunnel group set up to get a local IP address and when I enable the dhcprelay I get the error ""Secure VPN Connection terminated by Peer. Reason 433:(Reason Not Specified by Peer)" "
