pix (or asa) and manual IP address allocation ?

Hello,

does the dhcpd of the Cisco Pix 500

or ASA5500 systems provide the feature

of "manual IP address allocation"?

This means, that

a client's IP address is assigned by the network administrator, and DHCP is used

simply to convey the assigned address to the client.

For realizing this feature The

assignment of the client

mac-address - IP address (should be assigned)

is necessary.

As far as I know there exists no possibility

to realize "manual IP address allocation"

for the Cisco Pix 500 or ASA5500 systems.

Are there further hints?

Regards, Barbara

Re: pix (or asa) and manual IP address allocation ?

Hi,

you r right, there is no option ASA and PIX 500 (OS 7.0) to manually bind the IP to MAC addr.

Though, u can use ASA or PIX as relay agent. The following restrictions apply to the use of the DHCP relay agent:

•The relay agent cannot be enabled if the DHCP server feature is also enabled.

•Clients must be directly connected to the security appliance and cannot send requests through another relay agent or a router.

•For multiple context mode, you cannot enable DHCP relay on an interface that is used by more than one context.

kindly update for further queries.

regards
