DHCP relay and VPN

    Has anyone tried this?

    PIX 506e 6.3(5)

    I'd like my VPN clients to get their IP addresses from our internal DHCP
    server, not the PIX. I can enable DHCP relay on the outside interface and
    point it at the internal DHCP server, but this just doesn't sound like a
    good idea. Would I have to permit inbound DHCP requests or, since it's
    inside a tunnel, would it pass through without opening up the firewall.

    Ultimately I what I'm really after is a way to use DHCP to hand out the same
    address to a given workstation regardless if it is connected to the LAN or
    VPN. I have a feeling DHCP won't work for this even if it does relay the
    request.

    Has anyone tried something like this, or has an idea how it may be
    accomplished?

    Thanks
    RC
