Win Server 2008r2 VPN fixed IP adresses

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.

I assume it is domain environment.

Go to Active Directory Users and Computers - double click on Vpn user account - Dial in tab -

In the middle of dialog box , there is option "Assign Static IP Address "

Try

Hi,

I missed that one :-(

I assume that I should use an address that is outside of both the normal server DHCP range and the static address pool to avoid collision?

Great thanks for your help so far
