    Configuring Access Address Pools (NSM Procedure)

    With an address pool, you configure an address or address range. When you define an address pool for a client, the layer2 tunneling protocol network server (LNS) allocates IP addresses for clients from an address pool.

    To configure access address pools in NSM:

    1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
    2. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the device to select it.
    3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, expand Access.
    4. Select Address Pool.
    5. Add or modify settings as specified in Table 1.
    6. Click one:
      • OK—Saves the changes.
      • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
