Getting the windows VPN to use a static IP.

Server 2012 Standard
Windows VPN
The VPN is set up and working. The issue is that I do not seem to be able to find where to get it to use a static local IP instead of a DHCP address.
Hence, every time the server reboots it grabs a different one.
I have a remote user overseas that maps a drive by IP.

Is someone would be kind enough to point me to the setting, I would be thankful.

The user should be vpn'ing into the server not the reverse. please amplify

The remote user should be able to use the server's LAN IP, not the assigned server VPN IP, once the VPN is connected.  RRAS looks after the routing by default.

do you mean to assign a static IP address for the VPN user? If yes, do you server side for some reasons need to access the VPN user’s network share by IP? it sounds like a unusual requirement hence please clarify and explain why.
