IPSec VPN Tunnel - Tunnel interface IP address use?

Hi folks,


I am being asked to setup a new IPSec VPN Tunnel and one of the questions from their "worksheet" is what our Tunnel interface IP address is.


We have several IPSec VPN tunnels, each with their respective Tunnel Interface assigned.  Most of them do not have a specific static IP assigned to there tunnel interface, only a couple.  These were already here when I started...


I am assuming it is not necessary for the IPSec Tunnel to function, since they all work fine without a static IP defined at the tunnel interface specifically.


I am wondering, when or why would you configure a static IP for a tunnel interface for a IPSec VPN tunnel?
