Win Server 2008r2 VPN fixed IP adresses
Posted on 2014-12-04
I have set up Windows server VPN links between 3 computers and a Win 2008r2 server. In principle it works, but there is an issue with the IP4 addresses on the clients.
I have set up an static address pool on the server with addresses x.x.x.40-49 on the server. The 3 clients get an address from this pool with no problem. As we have communication both ways Client->server and Server->client, we need these IP addresses to stay the same.
Is there any way to do an IP address reservation as in a normal DHCP server on these client addresses, or alternatively assign a fixed address to the client in the server? We have had cases where the client get a new IP address from the server. Then of course the Server->client communication breaks down.
I am eagerly awaiting the experts answer.
