PIX `s DHCP relay

Dear All,

We have the following scenario:

DHCP Server --- PIX515 ---- Internet ---- VPN Client

1. VPN Client terminates the tunnel to the PIX.

2. PIX assign an internal IP address to the client.

3. The pool IP address is received from internal DHCP server.

Does it possible for the PIX to request an IP address to the DHCP server on behalf of VPN remote client ?

(BTW, this is possible for VPN3000 Concentrator)

Regards,

Engel

Re: PIX `s DHCP relay

Thank you for your info. Do you know if Cisco`s PIX team considers to implement this feature (DHCP relay for VPN client`s IP pool) ? Would like to know if it is on the road-map for future release.

Thanks for your help,

Sorry, this is not in the roadmap at the moment.

Re: PIX `s DHCP relay

I think you can do this with a VPn 3000

Re: PIX `s DHCP relay

Thank you for your suggestion. But the customer already deployed several PIXes on some of the branch offices, and they want those PIXes to be able to terminate VPN tunnel from remote clients. They already know that PIX can do VPN, so they are not interesting on buying new hardware.

I would like to know if Cisco has plan to implement this DHCP relay on to PIX

Re: PIX `s DHCP relay

I havent heard about DHCP relay, but definitely there is a DHCP server in the PIX. Why dont you implement the DHCP server on PIX.

Re: PIX `s DHCP relay

Thanks for your suggestion. But the PIX`s DHCP server will not assign an IP address to the VPN remote client. It only serves clients on its internal network. This PIX`s internal DHCP server doesn`t be able to serve a VPN remote client .

Do you have any idea ?

Best Regards,

Engel
