In most cases, a branch office uses a static outside IP address to connects to a main office by configuring a site-to-site IPsec VPN between two Cisco ASA firewalls with static IP address on both end, But what if one of the remote ASA firewalls has a dynamic IP address?
DHCP is an application layer protocol used to distribute network configuration parameters, such as IP addresses, subnet masks, default gateways, etc.. to devices on the network. a DHCP client send request to a DHCP server. A DHCP server is assigns network parameters (IP address) to the DHCP client from configured IP addresses pool.
Cisco router and switches can be configured as a DHCP server, In this post I will walks you through the configuration process.
The Site-to-Site IPsec VPNs were used to connect two distant LANs together over the Internet. Private addresses were used on the LAN that means without tunneling the two LANs would be unable to communicate with each other.
