Static ip for vpn client
« on: June 02, 2010, 05:50:15 PM »
Hi

I am hopping some one can help me on this I am a novice when it comes to linux.

 I have a sme server for vpn access only, the sql based program i use requires static ip`s for the clients to update to the server. If i assign a static ip in the  windows vpn client i get an error that the server rejected the given address.

Any help would be grately appriciated.

Regards

Are you really still using sme6.x ?
It is obselete and has many security issues.
sme7.0 was released nearly 4 years ago.

Since sme7.2 release, users can be assigned fixed IP addresses with PPTP as follows:
Code: [Select]
db accounts setprop username PPTPIP 192.168.1.x
signal-event remoteaccess-update

I strongly suggest you update, and you will gain improved funtionality.

This is a wrong thing to do and as discovered will not work.
Search the forums for many previous complaints about doing that.
