pptp ip local pool

pptp ip local pool <pool> <ipaddr> [<end-ipaddr>]


This command configures an IP address pool for VPN users using Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP).





User-defined name for the address pool.


Starting IP address for the pool.


Ending IP address for the pool.

Usage Guidelines

If VPN is used as an access method, you specify the pool from which the user’s IP address is assigned when the user negotiates a PPTP session. Use the show vpdn pptp local command to see the used and free addresses in the pool.

PPTP is an alternative to IPsec that is supported by various hardware platforms. PPTP is considered to be less secure than IPsec but also requires less configuration. You configure PPTP with the vpdn command.


The following command configures an IP address pool for PPTP VPN users:

(host) (config) #pptp ip local pool pptp-pool1
