Based on the authenticated user, does it seem possible to

1. hand out an IP address based on that user


2. tell a dhcp server "give an address from this pool"

Im quite sure i saw the ability to give out ip addresses somewhere, but how is this done? I dont see ACS listening on the dhcp ports.

ACS does AAA and that's it, no DHCP. Let's say you VPN in to an ASA. The ASA passes your authentication to ACS and ACS determines if you're a legit user or not. If you pass, you're allow to connect. At that point the ASA can give you an address, either a reserved one or one from a pool.

HTH and please rate.

Are you asking this in regards to VPN or something else?
