FortiClient VPN MAC reservation


Just want to ask if it is possible to have MAC reservation on a FortiClient interface?

Like when a user connects, only this IP address is reserved for him based on his device's MAC.

Or has anyone tried it?

I just saw that when I edit the forticlient interface, an option for DHCP can be checked and then configure in Advanced options the mac reservation + access control. However, I cannot assign a valid IP and FortiGate keeps on rejecting the IP I put in it except

Your ideas would be a great help as I really need this mac reservation in my remote vpn access.

FortiGate model: 100D

FortiOS: 5.2.2
