VPN Client Subnet Assignemnt - ip pool

Unanswered Question
Dec 11th, 2007

Is it possible to assign a subnet using an 'ip pool' for Cisco VPN Clients? I assign my clients a 10.x.x.x address and it gives them a /8 subnet mask. I would like to give them a /24 subnet mask. Can any help? We are running IOS 12.3

I have this problem too.

Hi Michael

Try this

ip local pool poolname mask

Tried that. These are the options. I thought it was perhaps configured using a different statement. Is it possible to assign this client a static IP?

XXXX(config)#ip local pool dynpool ?

A.B.C.D Last IP address of range

cache-size Number of free entries to search

group Create ip local pool group

XXXX(config)#ip local pool dynpool mask ?

% Unrecognized command

XXXX(config)#ip local pool dynpool mask
