PIX as Dhcp server

I know the PIX can act as a DHCP server, but can it have MAC-to-IP reservations?

I would like my PIX to issue dhcp for our internal network, but I need to have a few reservations for clients.

Hi,

This does come up from time to time but I'm afriad the answer is still that the PIX cannot do DHCP reservations. The PIX DHCP server functionality is meant to be *very* basic. The idea was really to provide some DHCP server functionality to SOHO environments where another DHCP server did not exist. I doubt we will ever add this functionality to the PIX since other more full featured DHCP servers are available. You can do this with IOS DHCP if this is an option. Sorry for the news but I hope this helps save you some research time.

Re: PIX as Dhcp server

I figured that was the answer. I just was hoping that it would be possible to save me from running a machine dedicated to one small purpose.

thanks
