Subject: Feature Request: IP address enforcement
From: Jason Haar <jhaar,AT,trimble,DOT,co,DOT,nz>

pppd and commercial VPN servers allow you tell force the client to defer to
the server for their IP addresses. If you are wanting random people
connecting to your LAN via VPN, the last thing you want is them to be
assigning themselves your primary Web server as their own IP address! :-)

Could this be added to CIPE so that configs are something like:

#VPN client
ipaddr    server_assigned

#VPN server
ptpaddr   192.168.1.1-100 #assign next free address in range

CIPE currently really looks like a LAN-to-LAN only VPN solution. For sites
who want dialup users to connect back to the LAN, the IP addresses of the
clients needs to be LAN address too...

Comments?
