Static IP assignment to PSTN client

Dear all,

I have a PSTB user who is dialing to ras and IP assigned from the pool configured in local pool of /24 at LNS

Now user have a requirement that IP should be allocated to him which he has configured statically on his pC (which is from pool of /24)

Is it possible and how?

Thanks in advance

Re: Static IP assignment to PSTN client

Setting a LAN PC to a non-changing IP address is the practical way to insure it will never change. Be sure if you are using Port Forwarding or DMZ.

1) Select a unique IP for the PC

2)Obtain 1 or more (typically 2) DNS server addresses you can use

3) Most Windows PCs can use Control Panel to get to network settings (example: "Network and Dialup Connections" then "Local Area Connection" then "Properties"). Navigate to the settings for "TCP/IP" (example: "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)").

4)Change from "Obtain an IP address automatically" to "Use the following IP address". Enter the below values:

* IP address: x.x.x.x(from step 1.)

* Subnet Mask: y.y.y.y

* Default Gateway: a.b.c.d

* DNS servers: (from step 2.)

5) Be sure and click "OK" as needed. You may be asked to reboot.
