Hi,

I don't think there is an easy way to accomplish this.

However, if you create a different groupname for the user who needs a static ip address, I think you should be good to go

So what you need to do is, create a new pool of addresses. Make the start and stop ip address to be the same ( this is the address that you would want to assign to the VPN user)

Configure another ipsec group on the router, and link the new pool to this group

Have your VPN client connect to this group


Hope that helps
