DHCP for users


we have a bunch of remote SOHO sites connecting to an ASA device. All of them are configured to relay DHCP requests to the outside interface of the concentrator. The ASA device is configured to relay DHCP requests to the server located within the internal network. SOHO devices connect as normal remote users matching a separate tunnel group and group policy.

We also have quite a lot of remote users obtaining IP addresses from locally defined IP pools. We are now thinking about a possibility to provide those users with IP addresses from a DHCP server.

Is it possible to have both configs in place at the same time? First of all, we would like to migrate only users with locally configured IP pools without breaking or adjusting any kind of config for SOHO devices.

This is the 5540 ASA box running 8.2(5) version of code.

Thank you in advance for your help,

DHCP for users

Sure, as long as they are using different group policies or connection profiles. The ASA itself can serve up the addresses from a dhcp pool.

There are several ways to do this, depending in large part on the specifics of how you have currently setup your VPNs. For examples, see all the occurences of "DHCP" in the configuration guide.
